Innocent's Story Summary

Innocent's Story by Nicky Singer

When Cassina is blown-up by a bomb in a station in England, life as she knows it is over. Except that she doesn't die. Cassina survives as something that can live in the heads of humans, knowing their thoughts but powerless to change them. She ends up in a variety of minds - her mum's, her dad's, a mad old lady's, a bigot's - but most scarily of all, she ends up in the head of the man who murdered her. It's an experience that challenges her beliefs and preconceptions, that terrifies her and frustrates her but, most of all, that changes her. Can it change her killer too...? This is Cassina's story, in her voice - a voice that will grip you and goad you, make you laugh and make you cry. It is a voice you will never forget.

Innocent's Story Reviews

Thought-provoking and horribly topical. Bookseller This tense, gripping novel could hardly be more topical, raising questions of faith, loyalty and responsibility. Linda Newbery, TES The sheer imaginative audacity of The Innocent's Story propels it beyond anything expected. Julia Eccleshare Brilliant! A truly original and moving story. The Teacher Here is proof positive that children's books can be just as affecting and wonderfully written as those written for adults. This startling book had me gripped from page one... it's like a The Lovely Bones for teenagers and is quite simply unforgettable. Excellent. Evening News (Norwich) This is an original, often blackly humorous novel, which sets out to probe beneath the surface of easy assumptions. Irish Times Fine writing and shrewd perceptions ... contribute to this resounding tale. Independent on Sunday Tender, thoughtful and idealistic, this is a tough but immensely worthwhile read. Independent
