It is also at times very very funny and at others terribly sad. Attwood never whinges or whines and not once does he say 'why me?'At all times he is aware that he has done wrong and there is never a part where you think that he feels exempt from punishment. It is the CONDITIONS that he takes issue with and rightly so!!!
I loved this book & I would recommend it to anyone.
I decided to purchase his book. In the first day of me getting it i couldnt stop reading it, i dont normally read loads of books but this book got me gripped from the start.
I would defiantly read it, especially if you have met the guy.
Just finished reading your book and I have to say, it is one amazing story! I absolutely loved it from beginning to end. I am really looking forward to reading the rest of your amazing journey.
Keep up the good work!
P.S. You have been the topic of many a conversation since coming into Stoke Newington School, and I know that your coming in has had a positive impact on a lot of our children.
