Lucas, Glossopdale School


Rook is a book about Nicky, who is going through quite a lot at the time, including problems with a bully and his first love who coincidentally happens to be the bully's sister.

Him and his brother, Kenny, rescue a bird from a fight and name it Rooky. In some ways, its injuries follow the emotions of Nicky throughout the book. But then, shortly after, everything suddenly goes downhill.

Nicky's emotions are shown well during the book. While the book is printed in large font, don't let that make you think that it isn't a fairly complex story.

Overall, I liked this book, but some parts of it could've been longer, as it has a slightly rushed feel sometimes. I would recommend this book to ages 10+ and I would give it 3/5 .
