The Killing Jar by Nicola Monaghan

Ballyroan Reads

A gripping, mile-a-minute debut about selfishness, self-obliteration and one girl’s perseverance. The Killing Jar tells the story of Kerri-Ann who lives on a drug-riddled estate. She doesn’t know who her father is, and her mother is a junkie.

By the age of 10 she’s selling drugs at school. By 12, she’s been beaten up by a customer, hidden stolen guns, done time in a girl’s home, and already has a taste for whiz. She is also left to care for her little brother Jon.

She has one true friend, Mark who is the one person she can trust. Friendship turns to love- but can it stand the caustic world they live in?

This book is fast-paced and, to be honest, very chilling! Once I started I couldn’t put it down.

Definitely recommended.
