This is Eustace’s story of survival in a world that seems to have so many barriers for him. There are some incredibly sad and emotional parts, but there’s a wonderful wit and humour within the writing that keeps the story from becoming too dark and too anguished.
I can’t say any more. I don’t really have the words to express just how much I loved this book. It’s not fast-paced or action filled, with twists and turns. It is however, so tender, so insightful and full of love. The power of love; the power of music and the power of kind and influential adults upon a young boy.
Intelligent, warm, cleverly structured. A novel to cherish and to shout about. Fabulous, just fabulous.
