This is very very different from the Ian Woodhead books I’ve become accustomed to. This is a short story so it’s only 16 pages, nice for those days where you want a story but you don’t have too much time, or perhaps you just want a quick read before bed time.
The main character of the book is a young girl called Amy who lives at home with her parents, goes to school and has a room full of cuddly toys but there’s a dark and sinister side to this tale and there’s nothing fluffy about it.
I really enjoyed this book, it’s a refreshing step in a new direction for Mr Woodhead and personally I found it not only a bit more serious, but it tackles an important issue for many young people – bullying. Having said that, the language is a little strong so it’s definitely not for children.
I’d like to see more like this from Ian Woodhead, the story is very well written and although it does have a couple of errors it’s much more entertaining than the usual subject of Zombies. I think this is an author with a lot of potential and I’d like to see him really stretch his talents by showing us his sinister side.
I can’t say too much about the book due to it being a short story, because I don’t want to spoil the twist for everyone.
Definitely try this book out, you can get it here;
