Reader Review: When i first started the book, i didnt know what to expect whether it be good or bad. I had never heard of Keith Gray, the author before. The storyline is different, two boys stealing their friends ashes and bringing the ashes to, Ross, as the boy who died name was Ross. It nothing i had heard of before, so i enjoyed it. It wasnt anything amazing though but it's a nice read. So 3 stars out of five.
Ross is dead, and Blake, Sim, and Kenny are furious. To make it right, they steal Ross’s ashes and set out from their home on the English coast for the tiny village of Ross in southern Scotland, a place their friend had always wanted to go. What follows is an unforgettable journey with illegal train rides, bungee jumping, girls, and high-speed police chases—all with Ross’s ashes along for the ride. As events spin wildly out of control, the three friends must take their heads out of the sand long enough to answer the question: What really happened to Ross?
Keith Gray is an award-winning author from the United Kingdom, making his U.S. debut with this action-packed and darkly humorous novel about friendship and loss.
From the Hardcover edition.

Our best friend was ash in a jar. Ross was dead. Kenny, Sim and I were learning to live with it.
And this was all Sim's idea. It was just that Kenny and I weren't convinced exactly how great an idea it was.
We'd had to wait for it to get dark, which at this time of year wasn't until after half-ten. We'd given it until eleven. Now we were crouched whispering in the shadow of some scraggy fir trees in the front garden of the history teacher's house. We hadbranches jabbing at us, needles in our hair and down the backs of our collars. But no matter how much we shuffled and hunkered, the shadow wasn't quite big enough. We were still wearing our dark funeral clothes, and that helped. The problem was Kenny, who keptsquirming, shoving bits of me and Sim out into the glare of the streetlights. All it would take was one eagle eye to look our way and we'd be seen for sure.
A car sped by and we ducked our heads. It wasn't just the warm June night making me sweat.
"This is for Ross, remember," Sim whispered. "We can't flake out now--we all agreed. You agreed too, Kenny. Don't say you didn't."
Kenny made a noise--not quite yes, not quite no. "Can't we just put a note through his door or something? I'm telling you: if we get caught--"
Sim looked disgusted. "Christ-on-a-bike, Kenny! You want to write a poem in a card too? A card with love hearts and rabbits wearing hats on the front?" He shook his head, popped the lid off the can of spray paint he was clutching. "No. It's got to be big."
Kenny opened his mouth to argue but I nudged his arm, hushing him. ...
