When he is approached by Speech, a mysterious man who shares Rico's hacktivist interests, Rico is given the perfect opportunity to speak out about injustice. After all, what harm can a peaceful cyber protest do...From the bestselling author of Refugee Boy comes a powerful novel about justice, trust and idealism gone wrong that will make you look again at your definition of a terrorist.

Review:

A powerful novel about justice, trust and idealism gone wrong that will make you look again at your definition of a terrorist. Source: Labour Research

A powerful, accessible and revelatory novel with its finger firmly on the pulse of contemporary social and political issues. Source: Liverpool Echo

This book in my view is amazing. In some ways, the book is emotional and some readers may find it upsetting. It is a thriller that keeps you interested. If you are interested in action or thrillers, this book is perfect for you Source: Teen Titles

Terror Kid takes an uncompromising look at the problems of prejudice in both policing and society and is a timely reminder that skin colour or ethnic background should not be used to determine guilt Source: Crime Review

From the Author:

Benjamin Zephaniah was born and raised in Handsworth, Birmingham. By the age of fifteen he had gained a reputation as a young poet who was capable of speaking out on local and international issues. His poetry was strongly influenced by the music and poetry of Jamaica and what he called 'street politics'. He is also a musician and was the first person to record with the Wailers after the death of Bob Marley.

As well as writing poetry, novels, screenplays, and stage plays, he has also written and presented documentaries for television and radio, and he has been awarded thirteen honorary doctorates in recognition of his work. He now lives in Linconshire. To find out more about Benjamin, go to www.benjaminzephaniah.com or follow him on Twitter: @BZephaniah
