Rook is the third book in the trilogy by Anthony McGowan and tells the story of Nicky and his older brother Kenny who has learning disabilities. The book begins when they find a injured rook in a field and throughout, they look after him.

However, I found the book very ordinary and slightly boring. In a book, you would expect something abnormal and exciting to happen but in Rook, they live in an ordinary town and live an ordinary life. For dyslexic readers though, I can see how it would encourage them to read as it is a quick and simple book.
