Liars: No survivors by Jack Heath

Scholastic, 2018. ISBN: 9781742761930. Paperback, 235 pg.
(Age: 8-14) Highly recommended. Wow! What an action packed book right from the opening page where a plane crashes into a house in the little known town of Kelton. The accident is a mystery and there are no passengers aboard the plane. What an amazing way to start a book that is aimed for reluctant readers between the ages of 8 to 14. Mind you, everyone who picks up this book would love this adventure. No Survivors is part 2 of a 5 book series.
Jack Heath manages to take you on a modern day, tech-savy, STEM and danger-filled adventure which any reader will lose themselves in. It was filled with action and many plot twists which kept me reading till the end and now am so hanging out for part three of the series.
The main character Jarli is a very likeable boy. He invented the Truth app in the first series. Everyone has downloaded the app and many do not like, that people are using it everyday. Jarli's life has been in danger since the app went online especially from an unknown villain called Viper who is out to get Jarli. There are many likeable characters but I must say that Bess, Jarli's best friend, is one of my favourites especially since she doesn't let her disability slow her down. In this series both kids befriend Doug who is another STEM-savy genius.
I found No Survivors a very easy read that I couldn't put down. I just had to know what would happen next. I would highly recommended it to school kids.
