Bone is better than Potter,
This review is from: Midnight for Charlie Bone (Paperback)
Having read the Harry Potter books and the Children of the Red King series I can wholeheartedly say that I prefer Jenny Nimmo's books to JK Rowling's. I found Midnight for Charlie Bone completely encapsulating and I have re-read it multiple times.
The story is about a 10 year old boy (called Charlie Bone) who learns that he possesses an "endowment", a type of supernatural gift. He is soon forced into attending Bloors academy (a private school for the Arts & endowed children). Whilst at the academy he uncovers a mystery of a missing girl and with the help of his friends Fidelio, Olivia, Benjamin & Gabriel and the hindrance of his horrible Grandmother and Great Aunts he uncovers the mystery lurking within Bloors academy.
A recommended read for anyone!
