it was amazing

This is quite different from Iain Lawrence's other books I've read. The story is told on two levels - taking place in the early 1950's when the polio epidemic was in full force. Laurie's friend Dickie is stricken with the disease, and when she visits him in the hospital, she meets two other victims, also in iron lungs. She begins weaving a story about Jimmy, a giant slayer. I really liked this book, and I think both boys and girls will enjoy it.
