The Testament of Jessie Lamb by Jane Rogers

 

Whereas Mark Haddon’s ‘Curious Incident’ was billed as a children’s book which proved to be a huge hit with adults, I felt more and more convinced that The Testament Of Jessie Lamb would make a great addition to a teen reading list.

  Teenage protagonists aren’t uncommon in fiction, but the world Jessie Lamb inhabits certainly is. It’s a well thought out premise, and a chilling one at that. If any books ultimate aim is to make people think you could do a lot worse than get to the end of this one and ask a teenager: what would you do?
