The pre addition of dead boy talking

"The knife slipped into my body, a bright, sharp edge of death, a thief. It sliced easily through leather, skin and flesh. No, this is not some dead person talking from the grave. It's just me Josh, you know me. I'm not scared. I'm not! Yeah, who am i kidding?"
Josh has 25 minutes to live.
Lying alone in a pool of blood, Josh hasn't much time to think. Yesterday he stabbed his best mate, and now it's happened to him. But there are questions he can't get out of his head. Like, how did he get into this mess? Will anyone find him in time? Will his girlfriend forgive him, and what really happened to his older brother? As his life slips away, the events of the last 24 hours start to look very different...

That was the blurb of "Dead Boy Talking" and the release date is set about sometime in June.

If you liked the book "Spider" then you'll like Linda Strachan's second book.

I personally quite like this book because it was quite moving and made me want to cry and im sure some of you will too.
