Don't judge this book by its cover!, 16 July 2004
My mum bought this for me at a book sale and when I saw it all I could think of was 'great! I'm a teenager! I don't want to read baby stuff!' The next day there was a powercut so I picked it up and in five mins I had finished it. My mum came ito the room and asked if I was o.k because tears were streaming down my face. I answered " yes i'm fine. I just have to reread it to see if i was in a dream or really reading this book ".
I urge evereybody to buy this book and live this heartwarming story of a boy learning poetry and growing to love it. A must read!
