BeschreibungWitness tells the story of Todd, who sees his ex-teacher Jason Ripley attacking a mild-mannered shopkeeper he knows from his paper round. Shocked by what he has witnessed, Todd informs the police of the brutal attack Mr Wilson has faced. But Todd has no idea just how this will change his life. It becomes clear that Jason Ripley has acquaintances who are keen to seek revenge on Todd for his actions. And they won't rest until they get it, no matter who gets in their way.Witness is part of the Shades 2.0 series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant readers and struggling readers.
