Tom Hathaway leads a pretty comfortable life. He's got it all. He's only ever seen at school wearing Prada, Ralph Lauren or Gianfranco Ferre - because then he's a different person - defined by the cut and the cloth - cool and confident. That's how it is when your parents have money and you can have style by the label-load.This fast-paced read is dynamic and gripping, perfect for teen readers who want all the characteristics of a long novel, dealing with teenage issues and tough topics, in a strong, condensed book. From a series written by some amazing authors, this book is everything a reluctant reader would want to get them engaged. Note: this book contains some strong language, graphic scenes and/or tough topics, so is only suitable for older YA readers.

"Seeing Red was one of the most unusual and unique books I have ever read. It made me realise that inner beauty matters more than what's on the outside and that personality is the most special quality that anyone can ever have. This book made me think about how other people might feel in difficult situations."
