I remember being friends with him, and how we were both two pieces of a strange puzzle two pieces that complemented each other two people that were best of friends and had the same mutual bullies Until, that is, That s not a quote from the book that is a friend I lost because I wa
I didn t think that A.F.Harrold could write something better than The Imaginary but he did I didn t think a partnership between him and Emily Gravett could be equalled or betteredbut it has been Harrold s story of an unlikely friendship between the young, female protagonist, Frank and the class misfit, Nick is one which is cleverly and neatly woven As with The Imaginary, if not so in this story, you are left asking questions that when you start the book and believe me, this is a very good thing indeed.A.F s writing borders flits between witty and sinister and this is why Pinfold s partnership is a masterstroke His eerie and uncomfortable illustrations throughout leave you with the same sense of unease as A.F s narrative For me, the story was just as dark as The Imaginary with the same strong sense of ch
This book was sent to me by the publisher, Bloomsbury, at no cost It will be out in Australia in December 2016 RRP 24.99 hardback Recommended ages 9 12.Uh, wow This book is utterly beautiful and wonderful Both the prose and the object itself.The story bullied girl one day gets rescued by the weird, despised kid She goes back to his house where she hears haunting, enchanting music, so she goes back the next day Things get weirder over the next couple of days and worse, and better There s kind of magic, and real friendship, and problems to overcome I smiled I had tears I audibly gasped This is one of those gentle, insistent, wonderful books that make me happy to be reading It kinda reminded me of Patrick Rothfuss Slow Regard of Silent Things there s plot here, but the sensibility somehow feels similar This is also one of those books where I think by golly I hope I m not one of those sorts of adults Harrold has captured Frank s voice wonderfully, and an attitude towards adults their jokes are embarrassing, they can t or won t help with bullies, they re basically oblivious that feels all too real.Other things I love about Frank she has regular cranky discussion with her stomach, which tells her to ignore interesting if maybe dangerous things, points out that things are about to go badly, and occasionally ostentatiously ignores pr
Rese a completa Quietly beautiful A fairytale whispered in the concrete yards of terraced houses, this book grows and grows as AF Harrold leads us through a story about friendship Levi Pinfold s illustrations capture the fantasy in our reality too, making this an extraordinary and unique experience. This book is beautiful and terrifying the perfect read for kids who like things a little creepy and different Things I loved talking cat, friendship, overcoming bullying, gorgeous illustrations. Es un libro que deber a ser le do por mucha gente por todo lo que trasmiten sus p ginas Es una historia dura que te rompe el coraz n en muchos momentos por la realidad tan cruda que viven muchos ni os en sus d as La parte de fantas a me ha gustado mucho pero me hubiera gustado que se profundizar m s en ella, me he quedado con ganas de m s El final de la historia me ha
No voy a negar que ha sido una lectura bastante extra a, pero tambi n ha sido fascinante ir descubriendo poco a poco esta historia tan diferente, que trata sobre el amor, la amistad, y la valent a que est dentro de todos nosotros. I rarely use the word love about a book, but this one has a place in my heart Harrold manages to capture both the mundane and magical concerns and conflicts of a young girl who must navigate herself through a remarkable series of events It is also not often that I find myself unable to put the book down I hate this cliche but I was able to put my trust fully into the thoughtful, unpredictable and well rounded plot, feeling a wonderful sense of clarity, resolution, and coming full circle at the ending that I had missed with The Imaginary The characters were each complex and faintly familiar they could have been any number of nondescript people from my own childhood I thought Harrold s decision to treat Frank s conscience stomach as it s own character was an ingenious device to allow her internal struggles to play out for the reader, who grow ever sympathetic to her as she becomes increasingly and unapologetically honest with herself and her decisions Several tropes reminded me of The Imaginary, and I enjoyed these elements in both stories the cat bridging protecting the entrances to two or worlds dark, shadowy, greedy villains
Stomachs don t lie A beautifully written, captivating story about a main character who discovers new, mysterious worlds outside of herself and new worlds inside of herself as she learns to love and value someone different and listen to her gut.
