The Lovereading4Kids comment

A harrowing story about a boy who suffers not just from abuse but of a feeling that the world is against him, who runs away, experiences the most horrific violence but eventually has that eureka moment of meeting his father. The denouement is truly unforgettable.

Synopsis

Jake's Tower by Elizabeth Laird

In real life, Jake is never safe. He lives in constant fear of his mother's violent boyfriend. But in his imaginary tower he can dream up his own father - the stranger who gave him a cuddle and a fluffy duck the day he was born and went away for ever. Jake doesn't believe dreams ever come true. But sometimes they do.
