Amna T :), Swanshurst School


I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand there is Adam having to go through this turmoil everyday,being the gay son of an extremely religious family in a very small town. On the other hand there is the Queens story, a brutal tale of trapped spirits, drugs and deaths. The two stories rarely have any, if at all, similarities which left me with questions like 'why were they written in the same book?'. The Queen's story has the potential to become a spin-off book, but i personally think that these two stories should not have been in the same book.
However i am not saying this book was completely terrible. It covered many topics like stereotypes, racism "black people really not do meth", sexual assault "sexual harassment bordering on outright assault" and homophobia "gay cure".
I would recommend the Queen's part of the book to teenage fantasy lovers due to the bit of gruesomeness and i would recommend Adam's story to all people above 11 as it covers topics i personally think all people should have some type of knowledge about.
