Singing Home The Whale by Mandy Hager
This is a book with lots going on. A story with lots of layers. Will's friends and enemies, the people of the town some of whom want to help Will, some who want to harm Min. So, there is Will's trauma, there is a lovely girl, there is a damaged boy who has been abused and who gradually becomes Will's friend and supporter. Lots of story and plenty to keep you turning the pages. I loved the characters and I became completely involved in what was happening to them. Read this book for a great big story which will make you cry, laugh and for the experience of reading something really special. Highly recommended for everyone.
