Mrs Riman, Cokethorpe School
'Beck' is a very powerful and disturbing book about the challenges and traumas of a young man growing up in a hostile world. The author,Mal Peet, died before he was able to finish this book and so his great friend Meg Rosoff completed it for him. It is an addictive book to read as Beck's life twists and turns in so many directions. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone under the age of 16 as it contains adult themes so it will not be on our shortlist at school...you will have to wait a few years!
