Crime novels are some of our favourite reads to delve into.
The suspense they bring to our lives is tantalising and nothing quite beats the feeling of being on the edge of your seat over a gripping read.
‘I Have No Secrets’ by Penny Joelson goes beyond your standard crime novel, though. 14 year-old, Jemma has severe cerebral palsy.
She’s unable to communicate or move, so when her carer’s boyfriend confesses that he’s murdered someone, Jemma’s confronted with a terrible secret and she can’t do anything about it.
It’s an brilliant book and the storyline is will make you question how you treat people with disabilities.
It will open your eyes and remind you that most people with disabilities are just like us – many understand what’s going on in the world around them. So we shouldn’t be so quick to assume otherwise and treat them differently.
We want you to build your own gripping crime novel. Make it a page-turner like Penny Joelson’s fantastic book and we might even reveal your secret talent once you’re done.
