Cordelia, Tonbridge Grammar School
This book was fascinating and I could not put in down, reading it in three hours flat. The setting was anomalous to me but I felt as though I was there with the hot Mexican sun, the extreme temperatures then the long nights, the guns the violence, the fear. I got to know the characters as though I had known them all my life. Marcus Sedgwick kept me in suspense and on the edge of my seat as no author has done before. He painted the picture so realistically I felt the fear, the pain, the frustration as though it was happening to me. This book really opened my eyes to the trauma and terror these poor people living in these parts of the world struggle through and in their desperation to keep themselves and their families safe and what they are driven to do and risk.
