Description: As often with books I buy second-hand for really cheap, I didn’t know anything at all about this book. I was convinced to buy it when I saw it got the “book of the year” and “Book I couldn’t put down” awards in the Blue Peter Awards and that it had been reedited in the “Essential Modern Classics” collection. Very naturally, this book tempted me even though I didn’t know what it was about. We follow the little Robert Nobel, a 12-year-old student who doesn’t really have any friends. His class is involved in a common project with a Rest Home where he builds an extraordinary friendship.

This read was an extremely good surprise! It is incredibly touching, moving, and well written. The ending really brought a lump to my throat. This is one of these children’s books to which you can’t really limit the age of the reader, because it can be enjoyed at all ages. I have to admit the beginning was quite creepy and I was really expecting some paranormal part. I almost stopped reading because I was scared of being too scare (I know, shame on me, this is a children’s book haha, but I really can’t read anything with spirits and scary stories). In the end, no harm done, the story didn’t go anywhere scary! Just a false alarm then. Anyway, if I had read this book when I was nine, I think some parts of the story would have been too frightening for me. The second part of the novel really went far from this atmosphere and focused on the relationship between the little boy and Edith, the Elder he does the project with.

The main character was really touching and it was nice to see him get more confidence in himself. Really, this was a book that was hard to close because it is full of suspense and is really well-written. A beautiful novel that makes you think about life, death, memories but also the future and that makes us want to be more self-confident and to follow our dreams, because we all want to fly! It is also the most beautiful book I have read about intergenerational love. I think it will remain famous for a long time in the British literary culture. I highly recommend it from 12 year old (despite the publisher’s recommending it from 9) and also to adults who will enjoy it even more according to me.

I can’t wait to see the TV series adaptation by the BBC (which usually produces quality content) with a young Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually, Game of Thrones, The Maze Runner).
