James Minter

Author James Minterabout this book: If something has to be kept a secret, there must be a reason. It is usually to protect yourself or someone else.

As a child, secrets aren't easy to understand, some are harmless and fun, while other can really hurt people. It is important to know the difference between keeping a secret for the benefit of another, versus keeping a secret that might be harmful or even dangerous to another.

So keeping a secret of a surprise such as a party or a present will make another person happy, and the secret will no longer be a secret once the event has happened. But secrets that can't be told for negative, harmful or even dangerous reasons are far more serious.

In the story keeping the secret from Max about her birthday present was a fun secret, but what starts off as an innocent agreement, ends up being nasty when Ant uses it to 'get his own back'. And when Billy damages his dad's car, he makes a pact with Ant about keeping it a secret but it put a burden on both of them, and nearly gets someone else into a lot of trouble.

Secrets by their very nature need to be protected by those who know them and it can become very hard work to keep them safe, especially if you know someone else might be harmed.
