928 Miles from Home
This book is about a boy called Calum Brooks who is forced to put up with a stranger called Sergei Zurakowski who is moving into his flat along with his mum, Angie. When Calum gets run over, the two of them must work together to solve the mystery of who is vandalizing the Expressions community centre and who ran Calum over.
I particularly liked the book when Sergei and Calum are forced to work together and befriend each other. My favourite character was Sergei because the school bullies kept picking on him, and he was patient and kind with Calum when he was in an attitude. The story is full of mystery and adventure you never know what’s coming next. The story makes you feel really emotional through the speaker’s feelings. And you just wanted to keep reading the book because you can’t wait for what’s coming next!!!
I didn’t like the fact that the book ended because it just makes you want to know what happens next in his life.
I’d recommend this book to more able readers because of the words and vocabulary in the book. People who are fans of drama, comedy or mystery stories would like this book. I would compare this book to The Goldfish Boy and The Light Jar by Lisa Thompson.
