What do we think?

A great book!  This book taught me about dyslexia and how someone with dyslexia feels as well as how to support someone who has dyslexia. I loved seeing Tommy overcome his problems.

I loved this book, an unexpected ending but still enjoyable.  Not my usual go-to genre but I enjoyed it!  4.5*

Amazing book which really put me in the mind of both main characters.  Would recommend!

The further you read, the more interesting it got. The plot thickened and the use of language was very clever.  5*

This is a really interesting and great book about family, friendships and finding yourself.  I really like the fact that both main characters are dyslexic, as this can raise awareness and help people who struggle with it and be familiar to people who have overcome this and learnt to read more confidently.
