Another lovely story for children from Stead,
This review is from: Liar and Spy (Hardcover)
A really good end-of-primary book. Would have lapped this up aged 10-12.
Loved the understated feel of the bullying plot, the scrabble messages between mother and son, the storyline with Safer who isn't all he seems.
Preferred When You Reach Me as a mature and beautiful piece of fiction. But this is a thoughtful and non-patronising entry for younger readers.
