Review: Dead End Job



Dead End Job by Vicki Grant

This YA novel is a HiLo book - high interest and a low reading age, and is geared for YA librarians to give to reluctant readers.

The story is only 100 pages long, with large print and a simple vocabulary, but has an intriquing plot. Frances has a job, a boyfriend, an artist portfolio - and then has a stalker. The story is designed to be taut with tension, though you know how it will end.

This book took me little time to read, but I can definitely see the value of it for lower reading ages transitioning into older books, or for reluctant readers.
