Mrs Legerton, Great Marlow School
Beyond the Bright Sea
Having enjoyed last years 'Wolf Hollow' I was expecting something similar from this author. I was disappointed. The characters didn't invoke any love from me. I wanted to like Osh, but there wasn't enough from him. Both Osh and Crow would have been lost without Miss Maggie - she was the only believable character.
I am not sure young people reading this book today would understand the concept of leprosy or why Osh and Crow lived the way they did. This is a story about needing to belong to something and come from somewhere. I'm not sure that it achieved its aim.
