Book Review: Killer Genes by Yasmin Jiwa

This book is about 5 cousins and one of their friends. They are very inquisitive and sometimes too curious for their own good. In this adventure the 6 teenagers, when camping, accidentally stumble upon an animal research centre. When investigating further they discover a horrible truth. Along the way they find a stray dog who becomes a great companion.

I think this book is like a modern day version of the famous five. it is packed full of adventure and the plot twists and turns so you can never guess what will happen next. This is definitely a book I would recommend to a friend. I would recommend this book to 9 to 15 year olds.

‘Why would a virus just stop?’. ‘Because we designed it that way,’ came a voice from behind the door.

The US President is fighting for his life! Mysterious lights, an inexplicable illness and a deadly plague plunge the ARCTIC6 into another exciting adventure. When the friends stumble across a research facility hidden deep in the Suffolk countryside, they discover an insane plot in which the lives of millions are at stake. As they work to unravel the secrets of the facility, a deadly countdown is ticking. Can they prevent a global disaster? Do they have time to save the lives that hang in the balance?

Will they even have time to save themselves??
