The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a wonderful coming-of-age novel that every teenage boy will empathise with, and every teenage girl will glean insight from. Whilst constructing a moving narrative, the novel also explores a number of issues, including single parenthood, absentee fathers, truancy and bullying. Fish in the Sky truly captures the difficult but exciting transition from adolescence to adulthood. A book that will provoke the reader to both laughter and tears in equal measure.


Fish In The Sky by Fridrik Erlings

Josh Stephenson's 13th year starts with a baffling sequence of events. His 17 year old girl cousin moves into their house, his bedroom becomes a corridor and everything changes, not least himself.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
