Mrs McBarron, UAH - Hooked On Books
It is lovely to see a book designed for reluctant and dyslexic readers featuring on the Carnegie shortlist. I really liked this book and although short, it was still an emotional and powerful read.
The characters were so believable and well-developed that I became totally immersed in their world. The relationship between Nicky and Kenny was both touching and realistic, showing the strength of the close bond between them.
Although this book is part of a trilogy, it works really well as a stand-alone novel and has made me want to read the other books in the series.
I would definitely recommend reading this. It is a great book for anyone to enjoy, but particularly good for engaging reluctant readers or those who prefer a quick, easy read.
