Mrs P, St John Fisher RC High School

Rook

Firstly I want to say how refreshing it is to find an accessible read on the shortlist! For author Anthony McGowan this is the third standalone story about Nicky and his brother Kenny. I chose not to read the other two before reading Rook. The first chapter was riveting and set the scene for the rest of the story which focuses mainly on Nicky and is told in the first person. I enjoyed getting to know this family of four with hints of the trials and tribulations that have gone on before. The characterisations are excellent and the book would make a great one off drama for TV.
