Mrs Buckley, The Warriner School

Rook

A compelling page turner and quick read. Nicky's brother Kenny has learning difficulties and when they find an injured rook they decide to take it home to help it recover. The story follows Nicky and his struggles with bullying at school as well as his crush on Sarah, the bully's sister! Can the rescue and recovery of the bird help the damaged family and relations that Nicky has at school? I thought the book beautifully written with a deep understanding of how teenagers and their families interact.
