My Guest Review: In the Bag by Jim Carrington


I read and reviewed In the Bag by Jim Carrington, a young adult thriller that features two boys making a very wrong decision.

You may read my review at Becky's blog The Bookette right HERE. My thanks go to Becky for sending me a copy of this book for review and to Bloomsbury for providing the copy!

I read the book for the British Book Challenge (BBC) hosted at the Bookette.

SUMMARY: Joe and Ash are best friends. Ash is the leader, Joe the one who follows. Then one night after a party, Joe and Ash come across a holdall, seemingly abandoned by the side of the road. They open it up ...and find GBP20,000 in cash. Of course they're going to hand it straight to the police. Aren't they? Or is all that money just too tempting? Whoever has lost it won't notice if a bit goes missing, will they? And that is precisely when the trouble starts ...Jim Carrington has already established himself as a fine writer for teens with his debut novel, Inside My Head. With In the Bag, he shows how horribly easy it is for two teenage boys to make a car crash of their lives, through an unlucky combination of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and making a handful of wrong decisions.
