5.0 out of 5 stars A disturbing book, 24 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Bad Alice (Signature) (Paperback)
I picked up this book at the libary and started reading it because I was bored. I am so glad I was bored just then! This book is wonderful. It is about a 13yr old boy named Duffy. He is staying at his Nan's house while his mother and sister are away in america. He has Tourettes. He can hardly talk for stuttering. He twitchs.
His Nan trys very hard to make him be friends with another boy, but he is content with his new neighbour and friend, Alice.
Everyone hates Alice. They think she is nothing but a naughty, horrible. ungrateful girl.
That is the basic beginning, I won't tell you anymore than that!
I think the title really suits it, as bad can have two meanings(hint, hint!). This book is quite disturbing, though. At the end I thought, wow, how could that happen to some little girl?
I think this book wouldn't have been as brillient as it is if Duffy didn't have tourettes. That is a good touch.
Before I got to the end I found it confusing, remember, read between the lines!
Overall, I would recomend this to any boy or girl over 11. This is a touching and disturbing story about and unusal boy and girl and their stuggles with a very odd life.
READ THIS!
