The Lovereading4Kids commentThe Great Big Book Exchange is a bookshop with a difference. Simon is living with his grandparents after the death of his parents when he happens on it and discovers that Kelly and her boss Terrance offer him the chance to find the books he needs to help him through his bereavement by finding an escape and away of understanding himself.
Simon undertakes a delightful journey of discovery.
Exchange by Paul MagrsFollowing the death of his parents, 16-year-old Simon moves into his grandparents' claustrophobic bungalow, which quickly becomes a refuge from his bullying peers. United by their voracious appetite for books, Simon and his grandmother stumble across the Great Big Book Exchange - a bookshop with a difference. There they meet impulsive, gothic Kelly and her boss, Terrance - and the friendships forged in the Great Big Book Exchange result in startling and unsettling consequences for all of them.
