Publisher's Summary

Chantelle has everything going against her. She's a good student who only wants to pass her exams and find a way out of the sink estate in Manchester where she grew up. But now her feckless mother has taken off for Spain with her latest boyfriend and she's single-handedly raising her tearaway nine-year-old brother, Leon. She thinks her worst problem is the debt collectors at the door.
But Leon has made some new friends: teenage gang members who have given him a mobile phone, a knife - and some drugs to hide in her flat. A part-time job seems to be the answer to Chantelle's prayers. But the violence is about to come home to her - with a vengeance. And the only person who's offering any help seems to be just as bad as the people she's trying to escape from....

Just didn't get going till the final chapters

Would you try another book written by Mandasue Heller or narrated by Reanne Farley?

I generally love Mandasue Heller books, this one just appeared flat throughout. The Narrator was good and I would listen to her again


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was good, just such a shame that the majority of the book lacked suspense


What does Reanne Farley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Reanne was believable and was easy to follow and understand


Do you think Respect needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No no follow up to this book.


Any additional comments?

I look forward to the next Mandasue and hope they go back to the gritty normal stories.
