really liked it

This book is a (must-read) literature component for Form 5 students. Actually, I was quite excited to read this book, because it sounds special - a grandfather and his grandson on the run. I think the cover portrays the story quite well and it's really eye-catching.

In this story, Rory and his granda live together blissfully, even though sometimes there are troubles because of granda's worsening Alzheimer condition. Granda is a quirky, loveable character who is quite funny at times, while Rory is a matured teenager who loves his granda dearly and takes care of his granda's basic needs.

After a fire started out at their home one day, the two are forced to live separately from each other - granda in the old folks' home and Rory in foster care. As Rory sensed his granda's desolation and depression and his own unwillingness to leave him alone, he decided to run away with his granda.

This short story is like a cup of cooling tea in the afternoon. It's refreshing, original, heartwarming and hilarious. You won't regret reading it.
