This review is from: Boy A (Paperback)
The idea of creating a book trying to draw sympathy for a suspected child killer is bold, beautiful and brilliant.
The book is absorbing, drawing you into Jack's new world while never letting you forget his past.
I read this after seeing the TV special (which I usually try and avoid doing), and for a change they stick very closely to each other - the only real difference being that the book contains much more backstory to the characters in Jack's world: his mum, Terry, Boy B, etc.
Would recommend this book to anyone, especially mature teen readers who can always do with a bit of a moral grey area to get them thinking.
