The Lovereading4Kids commentThe sheer imaginative audacity of The Innocentâ€™s Story propels it beyond anything expected. Blown up in a terrorist bomb, Cassina returns as a para-spirit able to live in the body of anyone alive. Experiencing her parentsâ€™ emotions from within the brain is distressing, seeing the world from the viewpoint of an anxious bigot is irritating and depressing but finding herself knowing what a terrorist bomber is going to do next is terrifying. Cassinaâ€™s unusual view of the world is a roller-coaster of emotions. Itâ€™s also a chance to explore some of the reasons why people do terrible things.
The Innocent's Story by Nicky Singer
en Cassina is blown-up by a suicide bomber in a station in England, life as she knows it is over. Except that she doesn't die. And - miraculously - neither does the bomber. Cassina survives as something that can live in the heads of humans, knowing their thoughts but powerless to change them. Cassina ends up in a variety of minds - her mum's, her dad's, a mad old lady's, a bigot's - but most scarily of all, she ends up in the head of the man who murdered her.
It's an experience that challenges every single one of her beliefs and preconceptions, that terrifies her and frustrates her but, most of all, that changes her. Can it change him too . . .?
This is Cassina's story, in her voice - a voice that will grip you and goad you, make you laugh and make you cry. It is a voice you will never forget.
