This book really touched me, I think it must be one of the best books that I have ever read. It is about a boy called Michael who moves house. His baby sister is seriously ill and he feels helpless. Then he enters his garage and there in between the rubbage and cobwebs, lies a ...thing! Michael has to find out if this thing is a strange human being or an even stranger kind of beast. Michael makes a friend, Mina who helps him carry the thing out into the light, little do they know that their lives are about to drastically change. This story is simply outstanding, it grips you from beginning to end, the style in which Almond writes is beautiful and outstanding. I would recommend this book to younger teenagers , I think that if you pick this book up, you are guaranteed not to put it down for a long time(or at least not until you have finished it!) A great buy!!!!!!
