Code of Silence by Tim Shoemaker Book Review

About the Book
Telling the Truth Could Get Them Killed. Remaining Silent Could Be Worse. When Cooper, Hiro, and Gordy witness a robbery that leaves a man in a coma, they find themselves tangled in a web of mystery and deceit that threatens their lives. After being seen by the criminals---who may also be cops---Cooper makes everyone promise never to reveal what they have seen. Telling the truth could kill them. But remaining silent means an innocent man takes the fall and a friend never receives justice. Is there ever a time to lie? And what happens when the truth is dangerous? The three friends, trapped in a code of silence, must face the consequences of choosing right or wrong when both options have their price.

My Thoughts
This book was a pretty good read. Since all of the main characters were thirteen I probably would have enjoyed it more if I was younger. But nevertheless the book held my attention the whole way through and I really liked it.
Tim Shoemaker did an excellent job of painting the effect lies can have on not just your life but the lives of those around you. He also pretty efficiently captured the minds of thirteen year-olds, their actions, and their words were pretty spot on. The story was also well written and I would quickly recommend this book to young teenagers!

About the Author
Tim Shoemaker is a speaker and author of eight books, including Dangerous Devotions for Guys; Smashed Tomatoes, Bottle Rockets, and Other Outdoor Devotionals; and Mashed Potatoes, Paint Balls, and Other Indoor/Outdoor Devotionals. He has three grown sons and has been happily married for over 32 years. His debut into the juvenile fiction market draws from his experience with kids as a volunteer youth leader for more than sixteen years.

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
