During our last meeting we agreed that as a book club we would not just stick with traditional and easy to decide books. Books that were already being talked about necessarily. We wanted to taste all crime fiction. So in June we are reading YA crime. And the choices this month are below. You can vote for your choice in the comments below, on the Facebook page, or on twitter using the hashtag #crimebookclub
Crocodile Tears by Anthony Horowitz
It’s just another day in the life of an average kid. If you?re Alex Rider, that is. A con artist has realized there is big money in charity? the bigger the disaster, the greater the money flow! So that is what he will produce: the biggest disaster known to man, all thanks to genetically modified corn that can release a virus so potent it can knock out an entire country in one windy day. But Alex Rider will face whatever it takes?gunfire, explosions, hand-to-hand combat with mercenaries? to bring down his most dangerous adversary yet.
Looking for JJ by Anne Cassidy
Three children walked away from the cottages on the edge of town toward Berwick Waters. Later that day, only two of them came back. . . . Alice Tully knows exactly what happened that spring day six years ago, though it’s still hard for her to believe it. She’ll never be able to forget, even though she’s trying to lead a normal life–she has a job, friends, and a boyfriend whom she adores. But Alice’s past is dangerous, and violent, and sad . . . and it’s about to rip her new life apart.
How to Fall by Jane Casey
Freya is found drowned – but was it suicide or murder? Her cousin, Jess Tennant, is determined to uncover the truth. But asking questions may prove deadly – anyone could be a suspect and everyone is hiding something…
Can Jess unravel a mystery involving secret love, seething jealousy and a cliff-top in the pitch black of night?
