Overview

Boom! by Mark Haddon

An explosive, highly charged, and hilarious middle-grade adventure from Mark Haddon, acclaimed author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time.

From the moment that Jim and his best friend, Charlie, bug the staff room and overhear two of their teachers speaking to each other in a secret language, they know there's an adventure on its way.

But what does "spudvetch" actually mean, and why do Mr. Kidd's eyes flicker with fluorescent blue light when Charlie says it to him? Perhaps Kidd and Pearce are bank robbers talking in code. Perhaps they're spies. Perhaps they are aliens. Whatever it is, Jimbo and Charlie are determined to find out.

There really is an adventure on its way. A nuclear-powered, one-hundred-ton adventure with reclining seats and a buffet car. And as it gathers speed and begins to spin out of control, it can only end one way . . . with a BOOM!

YO! NEXT PART AT RESULT TWO! ---- My boyfriend Nico Di Angelo has been off doing something for Hades. I have always felt that Hades had a grudge on me. My skin is paler than usual because it's winter and my lips are clear and white as ice. A thin and delicate, cold hand appears on my shoulder. A soft voice echoes in my mind. "Sophie." It says in a soft whisper. It sounds warm and comfortable. I turn and see Nico. My mouth curves into a smile. "Nico. Hey." I mutter. My voice cracks whe I say his name. We usually ge along and stay in silence, but he broke it." Have you heard what Chiron was talking to Rachel about? Something about survival games. And uh. . . A fire arena? "He asked. I knitted my eyebrows. "Uh. . No." I said. A sour taste filled my mouth, which happens when I'm depressed. ---NEXT PART AT RESULT TWO! FEEDBACK AT MAYBE REULT ONE!-DTOTFA

Had to force myself through it. I was a fan of his previous books, but this was just too unreal and childish.

A pretty grey and white she with a leaf filled with herbs in her mouth walked up to Mockingjay. She ipened the leaf to reveal borage rassberry leaves and a stick. "Eat the rassberry leaves and bite the stick when the pain comes. Once all the kits are born eat the borage." The she-cat fades from sight.
