Rook

The book is about two brothers - Kenny and Nicky. One day walking they find a rook. Kenny thinks it is going to survive but Nicky doubts him. Nicky is the main character and is also the oldest brother. He has worries about the school bully and his first love. On the other hand Kenny has learning difficulties, this is reason his mother left, and they are quite poor.
My favourite character was Jenny, who is their step mother. When you think of a step mom you probably think evil but she was quite different. She brought them a Xbox and even brought Nicky a phone. She treated them as her own. She was kind and generous and helped their father. The book itself was good. It did make me want to turn the pages and it was normal everyday school life which was good.
The only thing I disliked about the book was that his crush with Sarah could have gone somewhere. It was so obvious she liked him. So I hope there will be a sequel and that it has romance,
Overall the book was great, but it was not my favourite because of the romance, so I give it 9/10
