"British author Brooks creates a believable, idiosyncratic voice for Moo, making him vivid as a person in his own right and not just the object of events....Most bracing of all is the book's refusal to compromise its toughness. Moo isn't in a dilemma because he's a kid and therefore can't see the long-term view, but because this situation offers no acceptable way out. That's not a quandary that usually appears in literature for young people, but it's certainly one that occurs in real life."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Moo Nelson likes to be alone. Overweight and shy, Moo is constantly mocked and bullied by his cruel classmates. He's happiest spending time on a secluded bridge above the highway, watching the cars go by. One day, from his special spot, Moo witnesses a crime that changes his life forever. He sees a car chase and a murder--and suddenly Moo's a celebrity of sorts. The police, the lawyers, and even the bullies are now really interested in Moo. But so is one shady character who seems intent on tracking Moo down. Now all Moo has to do is find out the truth behind the crime...before it's too late.
