12+: The Named - Marianne Curley

Release Date: 17/05/10


Imagine if you were able to change history. By altering one tiny thing you could start a chain of catastrophic events. Ethan is one of the Named, fated to stop this ever happening, although the forces of chaos have other ideas and Ethan is finding it more and more difficult to stay one step ahead. He is also a normal schoolboy, whose life is rapidly becoming far too confusing. So when Isabel arrives on the scene she is only going to make matters worse ...or is she? This is history in the making - literally.


Having been recommended this title by friends, I wasn’t 100% sure what was going to unfurl within this title. What does occur within is a tale that is not only fairly complex but one that will introduce the young reader to the time travel concept. It’s beautifully constructed, it’s got believable characters and the script is something that leaps from the page into your mind. Add to the mix a masters touch with the lulls and peaks and the reader will have a tale that will stay with them long after the final page is turned.
