Why I chose this book:
I was in the library and I was looking for a short book to read. I found this book, and I read the blurb. I found the blurb amusing and quite breath-taking. I looked at the front cover and it looked like a mystery, so I read it

Bingo board:
It has a male main character in it.
Nathan is a boy which is possibly 10-13 years old. He lives in England and enjoys watching and playing soccer, he also plays for a club. He is a normal boy, he has friends, goes to school, has a little s

Brilliant for what it is - dyslexia friendly and an excellent classroom resource for young or struggling readers.

Miksei meillä ole tällaisia kirjoja suomeksi??? Dyslexia friendly -tarralla varustetut kirjat ovat loistavia kirjastokäytössä.

Alle sata sivua, oikea juoni, jännitystä, KIRJA!!

Isää epäillään murhasta ja poika joutuu käymään läpi niin äidin väsymyksen, pikkusiskon ymmärtämättömän surun, lehtimiesten piinan, koulukavereiden kiusaamisen, lakimiehen kuulustelut ja omat epäilyksensä.

After reading this, M-Tear must admit that she was expecting so much more. It was too short, more likely for someone under the ages of ten or eleven, but it mentioned a few themes that wouldn't be appropriate, like not only the fact that the book's plot is about a murder, but it also mentions rape.
All in all though, it's not a book that M-Tear will be reading again.

I've picked this book to read with some teens with dyslexia, etc. Have to say I found the story a bit predictable but not patronising.

This book was different, but not one of the best I've read.

The story was good but the book could have describe it more.

And not be that fast.
