New Book for the Library

9781409576327

This book made me cry and laugh sometimes at the same time!

It is a story of how one boy comes to terms with the loss of his mum without having said goodbye.  Becket, the main character, takes care of his younger brother Billy with such love; I wanted to sit in the armchair and be comforted by the stories!

As Becket makes a small number of friends at a new school, he comes to know that other people are suffering tragedies in their lives also.  Each has their own unique way in which they have come to terms with their loss giving Beckett the courage to face his.

I am sure this will be a welcome addition to our school library.  Having just received the list of 10 books for the Spellbinding, Cumbria Library Service Book Awards, it is sure to be popular.
