The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning Anne Fine has a rare gift for understanding teenagers and a sharp ear for capturing their dialogue. As Stolly lies wired up on the hospital bed his best friend touchingly charts the years of their friendship revealing both the strengths and the frailties of his friend. The result is an exceptionally sensitive novel about the complex emotions of adolescence.
Up on Cloud Nine by Anne Fine
How stupid do you have to be to fall out of a top floor window? Or was Stolly trying something else - up on cloud nine, even then? Stolly has always been so alive, so inspiring, taking risks, hiding nothing, notorious for being the school's most imaginative liar (or fantatist, as he calls it). But now he's lying in a hospital bed and Ian, his best friend who's as close as a brother, is watching, waiting and remembering...This is a characteristically funny, moving, life-affirming novel about a most remarkable character and the truly inspirational effect he has on everyone he meets.
