9780823432943: Thirteen

Thirteen boys were born at midnight in London on the stroke of the new millennium. Today twelve of them are dead. They were executed by a cult called "The People," under the leadership of a dark, ruthless man named Coron. The People have tracked down all but one of their victims and will do anything to reach their last, thirteen-year-old Adam. Adam doesn’t know he’s in danger. Raised by adoptive parents, he has never known his real birthday, and he has no idea that his days are numbered. When a cult deserter named Simon tries to warn him, Adam can hardly believe what he is facing. With help from Simon, Adam and his best friend Megan dodge a double agent policeman, multiple assassination attempts, and Coron himself, while labeled a public enemy for killing in self-defense. This heart-stopping thriller saves the best for last as Adam races against the clock to prevent a spectacular disaster.

About the Author:

Tom Hoyle is a pseudonym for a London school teacher. Thirteen is his first novel.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up—In this dark thriller by a first-time British author, a sadistic self-appointed messiah leads his brainwashed cult in murdering boys born on New Year's Day of 2000. Now 2013, only a few remain, including protagonist Adam, who runs, fights, and kills for his life, aided by his love interest and neighbor, Megan. Interspersed with Adam's action-packed running around are various scenes of gruesome murders, torture, and cinematically threatening posturing by the cultist leader, Coron, and his fit teenage disciples. Hoyle removes Coron's mystique fairly early by explaining that the "Master" he serves is merely a "shadowy production, a sort of echo, in Coron's sick mind." He also ends the novel with a list of real-life cults gone bad. Descriptive passages ("Gasoline was spilled carefully, thoughtfully, arteries linking to veins") and well-formed chapters, which almost all end in dramatic single-sentence cliff-hangers, keep this work thrilling, if readers can keep track of the very large cast of dispensable bad guys. VERDICT Though characterization and dialogue are a bit weak, this gruesome survival story will most likely garner a readership among violence-craving, action-loving anglophiles.—Rhona Campbell, Georgetown Day School, Washington, DC
