Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 July 2016
Bought for our teenage son as a holiday read, but a snatched read of the first pages on the plane drew me in immediately. Luke could be any teenage boy today - happy in a virtual world, 'meeting up' with friends online each day, only surfacing briefly from his room for meals...Everything a distraction from the latest computer game or u-tube video.

When you are first introduced to Guy, you know straight away that he is different, and that a friendship is going to be testing for Luke, but you only realise just how different as the story unfolds. This is so cleverly written that suspension of disbelief comes naturally, and the events that follow seem entirely plausible. Fantasy and magic sit comfortably alongside vivid and accurate descriptions of everyday life of a teenager at school, a boy who moves from bully to bullied; the victim of intolerance, prejudice and misunderstanding.

I couldn't put it down, and am left looking forward to 'buying my son' the second book on the trilogy when this is out. As for my son - he's half way through already and showing no signs of losing interest. Pretty impressive, given the competition of u-tube and wifi!
