Ella , Sir John's Shadowers

Rook

I found 'Rook' extremely heartwarming, as if it was really real. I could imagine this happening in a home next door to mine! Anthony McGowan wrote it from the perspective of a teenager, and the way he expressed Nicky's anger was excellent. Every word was full of feeling and truth, and even though McGowan is an adult, I thought he captured the depths of being a teen remarkably well. It starts off following an attack on a rook, and then morphs into the life of a teenage boy, with upsetting background.
Overall, this book was a delight to read and I recommend it to everyone.
