I really enjoyed reading Rook as it was a truly realistic story about a teenage boy, which I felt I could relate to. It was a serious book, but the little touches of humour added made it quite enjoyable to read!
I could really understand how the characters were feeling as there was some quite powerful language! My favourite character was Nicky; his life was extremely difficult but the way he tackled his problems was really inspirational. I also found it enjoyable how the author makes you absorb yourself in the book and want to read more. Although I haven't read the other two books in this series, I could understand what was going on because it was a really simple yet emotional story. My only criticism of this book is that I feel the ending is quite rushed and because the book is really short the author could expand the final stages. Overall it is an amazing book and very well written! I would recommend it to children aged 11-18. It is a MUST read!
