the Boy in the Tower

the boy in the tower by polly ho-yen

ade is a just a ordinary boy with an ordinary life. he loves living at top of a tower block and he loves his life.
but one day a building falls randomly near is home. An incredibly stable building. luckily no one is hurt.
the buildings keep falling though, with no reason whatsoever.
one day ade goes into school and an announcement is made.
two children aren't with them any more. the next day its a teacher...

this is a heart wrenching story of survival.
it also focuses on a theme of depression and death.
i thought it was really well written and very realistic.
i'd say it was a good book for people 10 and over.
my rating is10/10
