Just incredible . . .a great story!,
This review is from: Kissing the Rain (Hardcover)
I have just finished Kissing the Rain and I have to say it was utterly amazing. I was feeling a bit anxious that this book might not be that good, after reading and loving Kevin' Brooks over two novels, the thrilling Martyn Pig and the emotionally touching Lucas, this book had a lot to live up to.
Thank heavens! The plot is full of twists and turns and it will keep you hooked until the original ending.
The book is set entirely in the first person, through the yes of an overweight fifteen year old called Moo who is repetedly bullied at school. Then Moo witnesses a terrible road rage incident that results in the murder of a man. Unwillingly Moo is involved and is forced to make some tough decisions.
I won't say anymore.
Just one more thing to say is that the book is written in phoenetic English so that takes a few chapters to adjust to but otherwises this book is flawless.
