Another great read … Swan Boy

Swan Boy by Nikki SheehanSwan Boy

A book about learning to be yourself – against the odds.

Johnny has moved, with his mum and younger brother Mojo, to a new part of London following the death of his dad.  Settling into a new school, with the extra responsibility of collecting Mojo while mum works, are challenges made harder for Johnny by bully, Liam Clarke.  But neither teenager reckoned on the clever intervention of dance teacher Mrs Cray.

Superbly written by second-time novelist Nikki Sheehan, this book explores forging new friendships, the impact of bullies and of losing a parent, with a quirky underlying theme of swans.

Highly recommended – to suit ages 9+.
