Summary

Then.

Ella, Max, Corey, Fallon and Zane. The Fearless Five, inseparable as children growing up in a sleepy English seaside town. But when Max's older sister is killed, the friendship seems to die with her.

Now.

Only Max and Ella are in touch, still best friends and a couple since they were 13. But Ella is hiding things - like why she's afraid to take their relationship to the next level. And when underdog Corey is bullied, the Fearless Five are brought back together again, teaming up to wreak havoc and revenge on those who have wronged them.

But when the secrets they are keeping can no longer be kept quiet, will their fearlessness be enough to save them from themselves?

Critic reviews

"Monster is another rollicking adventure...but you might not want to read the final chapter alone in the house...or while you're eating...as you find out the truth about the Beast of Bathory. Great fun." (Martin Chilton, Telegraph's Best YA Books 2015)
"CJ does it again, with a boarding school story packed with tension.... Nobody captures the darkness of teenage nightmares quite like CJ Skuse." (Sophia Bennett, author of The Look)
"This book is a skillfully crafted rollercoaster of excitement, fear and shocks." (Reading Zone)
"The book has one of the best endings I've read." (4.5 stars The Bookbag)
"A rip roaring story." (Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian on Rockoholic)
"Sharp, funny and knowing...." (The Telegraph on Rockoholic)
"The tension and the comedy crack along with a heart-warming hilarity that is impossible to resist." (Amanda Craig, The Times, on Dead Romantic)

Young Adults only

Jesus why oh why do they not lable these titles???????? I kind of liked Sweetpea, another title by this author, so i bought this one. Sweetpea is designed for adults and this one isn't grrrrrrrh. I would also ask the author whether she thinks it is a good idea to paint death and subiquent after life as quite so rosey. Bearing in mind that teenage suicides are apparently on the rise..........just a thought!

Fantastic, heartbreaking, hard to put down

i lost a nights sleep because of this book! i just couldnt stop listening! Its fantastic, both heart warming and heart breaking. Now one of my new favourite authors.

The narrator is slightly annoying at times, especially when she is doing Neils voice. But, she isnt terrible and doesnt distract from the fantastic story

Brilliant.

Could not stop listening once the story took shape. Admittedly a few years were shed.
