When Eric wakes up in hospital he can't even remember his own name. There's a blank space in his head where his life used to be. They tell him he was hit by a car. He's been in a coma. 

But that's not the worst of it.  Everyone seems to hate him. They say he did something terrible - really terrible. He can't believe he'd be so evil. But how can he defend himself, when his memory is a total blank?

My Thoughts

This is a gripping story; an accessible, quick read (it's fifty-four pages) that doesn't skimp on plot or talk down to the reader. 

I enjoyed it, then gave it to my fourteen year old son to read. He's not a very keen reader but he couldn't out it down! I am now off to buy him Ann Evan's other rapid read books (you can check out one of them - Kicked Into Touch - on The Bookshelf and read more about Ann and her work on my Meet The Author page .)

My copy of Blank will now go a local school library as part of the fabulous BookBuddy initiative. If you are a teacher, or a prolific reader with books to spare, do check it out and help to share the joy of reading.
