Great 5 star YA read!!!

The Swimmer. The Rebel. The Nerd.
All Ryan, Harley and Miles had in common was Isaac. They lived different lives, had different interests and kept different secrets. But they shared the same best friend. They were sidekicks. And now that Isaac’s gone, what does that make them?
-full synopsis of book on

I was very lucky to have been given an extract of this book at SWF prior to its release.. Now finally I have closure!!! This is a story about Isaac is who is the central nucleus of a group where 3 boys are best mates with him but they are not friends with each other however when something has happened to Isaac, the “sidekicks” will have come together.. With elements of mystery and intense dialogue, this is a page turner right to the end.. I was expecting comedy like Will Kostakis’ “The First Third” however I was very surprised at how this book turned out – very different story and feel to the plot.. The story is told in 3 different perspectives and the author did an exceptional job in separating each voice but keeping the story together..

From extract to completion.. this book retains 5 stars!!
