Fiction The Fifth Rule Reef becomes the centre of controversy while he tries to rebuild his reputation and his relationship with Leeza, the only girl he has ever loved.
(Harper Collins, 2011) OLA Best Bet, Young Adult Fiction, 2012 “Pacing is fast and suspenseful throughout.
Reef and Leeza’s frustrated love story and Reef’s justifiable anger at the manipulative politician Decker are the emotional threads that propel readers through the plot.
The climax involves Reef’s going to confront Decker while Leeza races to stop him, and Aker uses short chapters alternating between the characters to keep readers on the edges of their seats.
