It’s exam season – but Five Mile is in shock. A teenage boy from Marsh Academy has been shot, with no clear motive and no clues. Disgraced DI Singh is on the case, and he’s determined to keep highly intelligent Garvie Smith away.
But Garvie knows he’s the only one who has any idea where to look for the answers. Starting with his best friend’s girlfriend. And it’s going to take more than pointless revision or flunking his exams to stop him getting involved. Exams. What exams?
This book is suitable for readers over 12 years old.
Garvie’s exams have started, but so has another mystery. A kid got shot last night, a kid from Garvie’s school, and Garvie thinks he can work out who did it quicker and better than the police. He’ll go to any lengths to find his answers. Kid Got Shot by Simon Mason is the brilliant follow up to Costa Children’s Book Award shortlisted Running Girl. Funny, exciting and intriguing.
