In The Bag by Jim Carrington.
Published by: Bloomsbury.
Released: 7th February 2011.
"Joe and Ash are best friends. Ash is the leader, Joe the one who follows. Then one night after a party, Joe and Ash come across a holdall, seemingly abandoned by the side of the road. They open it up ...and find GBP20,000 in cash. Of course they're going to hand it straight to the police. Aren't they? Or is all that money just too tempting? Whoever has lost it won't notice if a bit goes missing, will they? And that is precisely when the trouble starts ...Jim Carrington has already established himself as a fine writer for teens with his debut novel, Inside My Head. With In the Bag, he shows how horribly easy it is for two teenage boys to make a car crash of their lives, through an unlucky combination of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and making a handful of wrong decisions."
I loved Jim's last book, In My Head which came out earlier this year and cannot wait to read this! (A review of which, can be found here at The Book Zone for Boys, as a guest post!) It sounds brilliant. I love the cover! I can't wait to see what Jim has in store next! Roll on February!
