Getting away with it by Anne Cassidy

Getting away with it by Anne Cassidy. Pub. Barrington Stoke, 2009.

Mark’s girlfriend Katie dumped him then changed her mind. They meet and go to a club intending to take the last bus home. They miss the bus, Mark steals a car and drives erratically home in cold snowy weather.

The car hits a deer and crashes into a tree rendering Mark unconscious and hurling katie through the front windscreen. Mark awakes, sees Katie on the ground, panics and goes home.

In the morning he denies everything that happened and discovers that katie has died but would have lived had he rang an ambulance.

Mark lives with the guilt of the accident, has bad dreams and then starts to get text messages at the same time that the accident occurred. Will he do the right thing and fess up? Would you?

Great psycho drama from a master of this genre Anne Cassidy. It comes from the Barrington Stoke publishers who are masters of putting short, high interest stories together for reluctant teen readers. This story is brilliant and every other one from the same house is too.

Read this thriller first and see what I mean. Aimed at teenagers.
