Rook

The book opens up with a graphic scene of two birds, a sparrowhawk and a rook, which are fighting. Two brothers, Nicky and Kenny, find the injured rook and take care of it. In the meantime, Nicky is having trouble at school with bullies because his brother Kenny has learning disabilities and when he injures the chief of the bullies, he gets kicked out of the school. But the girl he fancies casually happens to be the sister of the ringleader and manages to let Nicky return to his school.
In my opinion, this book was a bit predictable. The plot is the usual cliché that has been often used in various teenage books I have read. I really liked the graphic scene of the two birds fighting at the start.
I give this book a 7 out of 10.
