When I Was JoeIt's one thing watching someone get killed. It's quite another talking about it.
But Ty does talk about it. He names some ruthless people and a petrol-bomb attack forces him and his mum into hiding under police protection. Shy loser Ty gets a new name, a new look and a cool new image. Life as Joe is good. But the gangsters will stop at nothing to silence him. And then he meets a girl with a dangerous secret of her own.
A completely irresistible thriller by an exciting writer. When I Was Joe won six regional awards and was shortlisted for the Branford Boase and UKLA awards, as well as being nominated for the Carnegie Medal and for the William Morris Award in the US, where it was picked as one of YALSA's top 100 teen titles of the year.
