Product Description

Review

'Marks's grip on reality is so good that the seraphic elements are swept along with total conviction' -- Sunday Telegraph

Like Seb’s own life, How it Works gets better and better as it goes along. This book has a soul’ -- Philip Ardagh, Guardian

‘A great blend of well-observed contemporary life and a little magic realism. Seb is an engaging and realistic character’ -- Observer

A really good book to read any time of day. A friend recommended this book and glad I bought it. Very interesting with lots of good and exciting twists and turns to the story. One I could not put down and could not go to sleep until I was really tired from reading. Highly recommended book.

Having read this book, I found it uplifting without being saccharine. It deals with the potentially off-putting concept of angels in a balanced and interesting way that will appeal particularly to teenage boys. The narrative is also well-paced and engaging.

Bought this book for a 12-year old on the strength of a review in the children's section of the Guardian. Within the first three pages were most of the swear words I could think of I'm no prude but this was over the top. My son said the book was "OK but a bit rude".
I guess there is a huge difference between a 12 year old and a 15 year old. I would not recommend this book for anyone under about 14 or 15.
