End Game

Alan Gibbons

2 Reviews

Rated 0

For National Curriculum Key Stage 3, Interest age: from c 12 years, Fiction, Children's Fiction, Thrillers (Children's / Teenage)

A real-life thriller about memory loss, arms dealing, and fathers and sons from million copy selling, prize-winning author, Alan Gibbons. 'He was here again last night, the man with the dead eyes. He was in my room and in my head.'

There are not many things Nick Mallory knows for sure.

He knows there was a car crash. He knows he is in hospital. And he knows he feels furious with his father. What he doesn't know is why.

As his memories start to return, Nick finds himself caught in a net of secrets and lies - where truth and perception collide and heroes and villains are not easy to tell apart.

Shortlisted for the Grampian Children's Books Award.

Praise for End Game

  • Gibbons clarifies but never simplifies the issues involved. The least escapist thriller imaginable, and yet as exciting, and often as much fun as Horowitz - DAILY TELEGRAPH

  • Very few authors would have the expertise to so beautifully capture such difficult emotions without making the novel an explicit one. - THE GUARDIAN
