Becca, Northampton Academy


I am reviewing Beck, this was my last book to read and I really enjoyed it. I was thinking it would be hard to review compared to the others especially Sputnik’s Guide to Life on Earth as it was aimed at 7 year olds and Beck is aimed at 16 year olds. I felt the book quite touching and has a lot of meaning. I think that as it is a 16 I found it deep. However, I didn’t really find this bothering I feel it probably just helped add book and emotions. I really like Beck as a character and I feel it is a believable story that there is a young boy who is different and he is being incriminated because of this although in modern day this doesn’t just happen because of race but because of disabilities as well. I also like how the idea is he is trying to find love and when he does he doesn’t know that it is love and tries to run away from it. I started reading it and got about ¾ of the way through when I was told that the reason it was written by 2 people was because Mal Peet died and Meg Rosoff took over however I couldn’t tell when it was 2 different writers. I really love this book and the plot and I have really enjoyed doing the Carnegie Award. I hope this book is in the couple of books being debated to win.
