Review: Almost True by Keren David

Ruthless killers are hunting Ty so the police move him and his mum to a quiet seaside town. But a horrific attack and a bullet meant for Ty prove that he’s not safe.
On the road again, Ty’s in hiding with complete strangers . . . who seem to know a lot about him. Meanwhile he’s desperate to see his girlfriend Claire, and terrified that she may betray him. Ty can’t trust his own judgement and he’s making dangerous decisions that could deliver him straight to the gangsters.
A thrilling sequel to When I Was Joe, shot through with drama and suspense.

My thoughts
A brilliant read which had me hooked from the first page.

I read the first book in this series a while back and have been meaning to reading this for a while. From the moment I picked it up I knew I was going to struggle to put it down as I found it addictively engaging because the storyline was pacey and action packed.

In this book you get to know more about Ty's background as he finds out for himself for the first time more about his father and his father's family. I loved finding out that detail to his past life and finding out more about where he had come from.

In this book you get a cracking new character in the form of Archie, Ty's cousin who was really fun to read about and a perfect sidekick to Ty in this instalment of the book.

As with the previous book the action is gritty and fast paced from the very first chapter which made for compulsive reading especially when Ty is faced again with those people responsible for putting him into witness protection in the first place.

Definitely a book I would recommend. I'm looking forward to the final book immensely.
