Not really my cup of tea. This book did have some really moving and insightful bits, but to be honest I found it quite boring. I think it was because your going day by day through a child's life and perceptions. Definitely well written, and Jack's perceptions meant that you could feel his confusion and how his reality isn't 'normal', yet also develop your own take on what the truth was. I think this goes in the same category as people who like those depressing books about child cruelty etc. I'm sorry if you like those things, or if I sound unfeeling, but I just find no enjoyment in reading them.
