Jack Heath was first published at the age of 18. He's 25 now.
When he's not writing or web-designing, Jack is performing street magic, composing film music, teaching or lecturing at schools and festivals, or playing a variety of instruments including the piano and the bass guitar. He stoically ignores his lack of qualifications or training in any of these areas.
This book is all action, and packed with ingenious ideas to help Ash escape one predicament after another as all their carefully made plans go awry.
Hit List is a fabulous book which I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to teenage boys and anyone who wants a fast paced and action packed story with writing that sweeps you off your feet and carries you away.
This is a book that gets your pulse racing and will have you in a page-turning frenzy to find out what happens... a story bursting with surprises and originality.
