A powerful, compelling novel from the critically-acclaimed author of the Branford Boase-winning I Am Thunder, about making friends, and breaking them too.

Fifteen-year-old Ilyas is under pressure from everyone: GCSE's are looming and his teachers just won't let up, his dad wants him to join the family business and his mates don't care about any of it. There's no space in Ilyas' life to just be a teenager.

Serving detention one day, Ilyas finds a kindred spirit in Kelly Matthews, who is fed up with being pigeonholed as the good girl, and their friendship blows the social strata of high school wide open. But when Kelly catches the eye of one of the local bad boys, Imran, he decides to seduce her for a bet – and Ilyas is faced with losing the only person who understands him. Standing up to Imran puts Ilyas' family at risk, but it's time for him to be the superhero he draws in his comic-books, and go kick the moon.

Kick the Moon, is Muhammad Khan's explosive second novel, with original comic-book art from Amrit Birdi, bestselling illustrator of Username:Evie.

Review:

This book will make you angry. This book will make you laugh. Muhammad writes with humour and empathy about friendship, belonging, toxic masculinity, maths and - best of all - comic geekery. Fabulous! (Patrice Lawrence, award-winning author of OrangeBoy)

A powerful novel that encapsulates the experiences of teenage boys with wit and heroism . . . Khan has created a book steeped in drama and empathy, as well as providing two iconic superheroes (Nikesh Shukla, author of Run Riot in the Guardian)

[Written] with humour and empathy (Independent)

Khan’s empathy and wry humour, accentuated by a deft use of slang, make this authentic and relatable (Observer)

'[An] ambitious, wryly funny, optimistic-against-the-odds novel'

(Times Literary Supplement)

[A] sharply drawn snapshot of the exuberance, complexities and downright scariness of teenage life (Guardian - Indie Bookshop Week Issue)

This is a book about racism, toxic masculinity, bullying and finding your voice. Khan's gift for authentic characters and believable dialogue makes his writing sing (Fiona Noble, Bookseller)

Despite tackling multiple, weighty concerns, this never feels laden down with issues but is a riveting read with an emphatic and believable central character. Strongly recommend. (Carousel)

A resoundingly stark, thought-provoking novel with a heart that burns with hope and courage (LoveReading4Kids)

[A] stunning follow-up to Khan’s excellent I Am Thunder [that] will cement his reputation as an author who can bring his characters vividly to life and talk intelligently about the pressures facing teens of all backgrounds. (crimereview.co.uk)
