Feather Boy by Nicky Singer

I really enjoyed this book as I thought it was great. I have also seen the TV version of it which was on when I was a bit younger but I was happy to remind myself of the story again! Thank you Michaela for letting me borrow this book!
Feather Boy is about a boy called Robert Nobel who gets badly bullied at school. The boy who bullies him is called Niker and he really hates Robert or Norbert as he calls him.

One day a woman called Catherine comes into Robert's class, she says she wants some volunteers to do a course with the Elders at an Elderly home nearby. The Elder that Robert gets is an old woman called Edith Sorrel. Everybody thinks that Edith is a bit mental with old age.

Edith starts asking Robert to do things for her, she asks him to go to an old derelict house called Chance House in St Aybuns. Rumour has it that a boy who thought that he could fly jumped out of the top floor there and that he fell to his death. Edith Sorrel tells Robert to go there and she also tells him that he can fly. At one point Edith even asks Robert to make her a coat of feathers to save her.

This was a really interesting book about how Robert deals with the bullying and about how he solves out the mystery about the connection between the boy who died and Edith Sorrel. I really enjoyed this book and I give it a 9 out of 10. Thank you Michaela for letting me borrow this book!
