Mrs Hodgetts, Murray Park School, Mickleover


A beautifully written book - but also very harrowing with regards to some of the content - but very descriptive and movingly told.
This book gripped me from the start and I read with bated breath.
From the Sisters at the orphanage to the Brothers in Canada, Beck did not meet with much kindness and his encounters hardened him to believe all people were the same. Bone and Irma were just about the first "nice" people who treated Beck well. Although yet again he was left alone.
Finally, meeting Grace with her family and happy life proves to be the best thing that could have happened to Beck. As their relationship moves forward, both Beck and Grace change and become better more open people.
I would definitely recommend this book - BUT to older students, due to some of the content.
