A good read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Junk (Puffin Teenage Fiction) (Paperback)
Beng part of my reading list for my Open University EA300 Childrens Literature course starting in October. Firstly I would not call it a typical childrens book, as the title suggests its about junk in other words drugs, also deals with the subject of child runaways and more sordid subjects. However, even though I was reading it under 'duress' I found that I was drawn into it and as the story moved on I wanted to know what happened next. A good read told from different perspectives and at times very unnerving and I am not even a parent, had I been a parent I could be worried! This book won both the Guardian Fiction Award and the Carnegie Medal and I can see why and I will read it again when all my studies are over as it was a good read. Totally worth a read. Avaliable for Kindle and as a hard copy book.
