What is a terrorist? A shocking, moving and timely novel about the choices that shape us.
Rico knows trouble. He knows the look of it and the sound of it. He also knows to stay away from it as best he can. Because if there’s one thing his Romany background has taught him, it’s that he will always be a suspect.
From the bestselling author of Refugee Boy comes a powerful novel about justice, trust and idealism gone wrong that will make you look again at your definition of a terrorist.
“Terror Kid is such an important book, showing how a disaffected teenage boy is drawn into a terrible crime he never intended to commit. Combined with a dramatic and sadly topical terrorism storyline,
and narrated in Benjamin’s ever distinctive voice, this is a book that will speak out to teenage readers today.”
— Emma Matthewson, Editor-at-Large.
