Abby, The Billips


I have recently read "Release" by Patrick Ness from the Carnegie book shortlist. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it.
The use of different perspectives makes for a very interesting read and I loved it when the two worlds are revealed to be one. I felt that it was very touching and also very serious.
The fact that it is set in the modern day is amazing! It discusses some very modern issues such as drug addiction, mental health and extreme homophobia. I found it very interesting and enjoyed its sensitive handling of mature subjects.
The characters are intriguing and the storyline, I feel, is very well planned.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book, I thought it was well written, however it may only be suitable for older readers.
