Read the First Chapter of 'The Crash' by Lisa Drakeford

As you'll know if you've read my last post, one of my favourite authors Lisa Drakeford has just published a new book called The Crash! It's YA. In fact, I'm quoted on the inside front cover saying that I think Drakeford's writing is the epitome of good YA, so there we go. The concept is brilliant and unique, exploring the present and the aftermath of a car crashing through our protagonist's living room wall. Why did it happen? How does everyone involved tie together?

Spoiler: I loved it, and maybe you will too, because I've got the entire first chapter here for you to read. I'd love to know what you think!

What did you think?


  1. Good idea - after your 1st post about The Crash I was thinking of buying and now after reading this taster I have used your link and purchased the book from Waterstones.

  2. THis seems soooo good so far! I've never heard of this author before

  3. Looks really great!

    I gave your blog a follow, and I would truly appreciate it if you could check out my book reviews blog located at and possibly give it a follow as well! Looking forward to reading more of your reviews!
