Evie, St Helen and St Katharine


Rook is about a boy called Nicky. Nicky and his brother, Kenny, rescue a very injured rook. Kenny is sure that the bird will recover but Nicky doubts the bird will make it. Meanwhile, Nicky struggles with a school bully and first crush. Rook is a well – written and easy book to read with a simple but effective plot. The book is a quick read but the story was packed with emotions and very interesting characters who all had very different personalities and different ways of expressing their feelings and that was definitely shown well. I think the characters were described in a way that showed their emotions really well and I loved the relationship between Nicky and Kenny and how Nicky always looked out for his brother. I feel like the plot could have been maybe more exciting but overall I enjoyed it and rate it a 7/10.
