This is a gripping story about the growing friendship of Andrew and Victor and how the latter's obsession with Air Force planes makes him vulnerable when his idolised Lightnings are to be scrapped. It's full of the realistic details Jan Mark is so good at, like the different atmospheres of Victor's super-clean home and Andrew's easy-going one, and Andrew's reactions after living in Kent to his new home and school in empty Norfolk. Andy Crane serves the story well as narrator. He reads at a good pace and, because he sounds as though he's telling the story not just reading the book, he involves his listeners.
