    I haven t ever read anything by Ally Kennen before and I was pleasantly surprised by how good her book was.Quarry is a story about a 15 year old boy who lives in a scrap yard called Scrappy Scrappy is generally a bit fed up with his day to day existence His mother has got fed up with his dad and packed up and left His Grandfather is going senile and he has been left to look after him and generally life is a bit dull One day Scrappy starts to receive strange dares via text To start with he g I haven t ever read anything by Ally Kennen before and I was pleasantly surprised by how good her book was.Quarry is a story about a 15 year old boy who lives in a scrap yard called Scrappy Scrappy is generally a bit fed up with his day to day existence His mother has got fed up with his dad and packed up and left His Grandfather is going senile and he has been left to look after him and generally life is a bit dull One day Scrappy starts to receive strange dares via text To start with he goes along with them for fun and the monetary reward that comes with their completion but as things progress the dares becomefrightening and nasty and Scrappy is left wishing he never got involved in the first place.I loved Scrappy as a character He is surprisingly upbeat despite all the things in his life he has to deal with You can t help but feel bad for him and the situation he is in I loved the relatinship he had with his grandfather and seeing their interactions especially the scenes on the old plane wreck.The whole stor was really creepy There were some scenes where I was generally freaked out with several bits where I wasn t sure if I d be able to continue reading but couldn t put the book down all the same because I needed to know what was happening The dares get pretty gruesome and it seems like the person daring Scrappy is everywhere and no where at the same time.I enjoyed the final resolution of the book and didn t see where it was going at all A gripping read throughout.The only thing I thought was a little off with this book was the age at which it was aimed at The ideas and language used flipped between being quite young at some points and aimed at younger teens while at others it was really quite uncomfortable and maybe a bit too frightening for younger teens.All in all a fantastically creepy book which I really enjoyed

    A great book, however, there are some parts which make little sense like one scene where Scrappy finds himself being chased by a large insect, which he later finds out is a foreign insect that is impossible for him to have seen you never hear of this insect again Was Scrappy hallucinating Or was it all to add up to the psychological effect We ll never know.Funnily enough, the front cover has the same neon yellow style as a certain edition of the GONE Michael Grant series I imagine this A great book, however, there are some parts which make little sense like one scene where Scrappy finds himself being chased by a large insect, which he later finds out is a foreign insect that is impossible for him to have seen you never hear of this insect again Was Scrappy hallucinating Or was it all to add up to the psychological effect We ll never know.Funnily enough, the front cover has the same neon yellow style as a certain edition of the GONE Michael Grant series I imagine this was a nudge of the publishers in getting the book readAnyhow This was a very interesting book, with a twist you would NEVER have expected
