The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. Powerful novel by an award-winning author, charting a boy’s harrowing schooldays in a sink estate in Liverpool. Two's company and three's a crowd, one has got to go. This is a terrifically taut and short novel and perfect for reluctant and struggling readers as it has a reading age of around 8 but an interest age appropriate for teens.

A Dyslexia Friendly title.

Synopsis

The Fall by Anthony McGowan

Mog and his mates are bored. Their school's a dump - the type of place kids get expelled to. Their lives seem pointless. The most exciting thing they do is jump over the beck: the polluted stream at the back of the school. And it's there that two separate events occur which will change Mog's life forever...

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