Conspiracy 365 – February, by Gabrielle Lord

Some miracle had put an end to the process. What had happened? I was shaking all over. I was almost completely submerged in oil, but I was alive…

Before January, Callum Ormond was a fairly ordinary teenage boy, in spite of the recent death of his father. In January, however, all that changed. First Callum met a man on New Year’s Eve who told him he should hide for the next year. Then Callum was nearly killed in a boating accident, before being framed for the attempted murder of his little sister. Now Callum is on the run, not sure who to trust, but knowing he must solve the mystery about why so many people are after him.

February is the second title in the Conspiracy 365 series, and sees Cal almost drown in oil, set on my bullies, come face to face with a lion and more, as his 365 day countdown continues.

Aimed at upper primary aged readers, the fast pace is sure to appeal.
