Book Review

Bang is about two boys named Q (Quentin) and J.D. Q and J.D. went on a bike ride and got themselves into some trouble with a man they had met the day before. This resulted in Q getting caught for what happened.

Bang was a good story that had its intense moments and parts where you couldn't put it down. I thought though that it was a bit confusing when the setting jumped from past to present. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a mystery adventure with some foreshadowing. Also, I suggest that anyone who likes to predict the ending to books before they finish would also enjoy this book for its twists and turns.
