Here's what you say about us...

While Nick Manns was growing up, his father was in the RAF. Every two years his family would pack up and move to another RAF base - but one of the things that stayed firm during his childhood were the stories he could fetch from the local library. Even in some remote desert outpost, there was alway a book to transport him to other worlds. He has written stories and poems every since. Formerly a secondary school English teacher, he is now a curriculum coordinator for Leicester College. A published writer of books about teaching, CONTROL-SHIFT was his debut novel, shortlisted for the North-East Book Award and the Branford Boase Award, longlisted for the Carnegie Medal, and nominated for the Stockton Award.

Very contemporary in tone and endowed with a gripping pace and very deft plotting ... allows the disturbing facts to unfold with a blend of time-shift and narrative voices in a way that heightens the reading pleasure. Definitely a must-have book to encourage teenage boy readers.
BfK 4-star review

DEAD NEGATIVE
'It's a thriller with a huge heart. I couldn't put it down.'


Carousel, Autumn 2003

Entirely convincing ... the elliptical, impressionistic style carries the reader into school and street life...the thriller elements will appeal strongly to teenage boys who need encouragement to read, but there's much to attract more sophisticated readers, too
TES

The tight writing, strong characterisations and powerful sense of mystery make this a book to remember.
The Bookseller

CONTROL SHIFT:
' . . . if this impressive work is anything to go by, (Nick Manns) is one to watch . . . well-written, suspenseful and a true page-turner, CONTROL-SHIFT is an uncompromising novel that will leave readers wide-eyed and breathless.'


Amazon.co.uk

SEED TIME:
I liked this book a lot. It was easy to read. The characters were very realistic, and the plot dealt with real issues. I would recommend it highly.
