    One thought on “Squib”

    1. How is the story told? Squib is narrated through the voice of the assumed author in 3rd person. Although the story is linear, we do flit through the lives of three groups of children who are of different ages. Kate (an only child), Robin (the eldest boy in the family) and his two younger siblings, Sammy and Prue (my favourite and the most realistic). There are flashbacks of a sort where children reflect on past events or a character retells an event. Patterns: Although she does not speak down to [...]

    2. Undecided about this one. The titular Squib is a seemingly mute, skittish boy befriended by four children in a playground. No one seems concerned at abandoning him in said playground to a gang of knife wielding boys.

    3. I was wondering whether I should give it three or four stars. The character, plot, all that stuff, was OK. It didn't make me feel what the characters were feeling, which is bad. The characters weren't dull or boringbut, they were in the middle. I really don't know what else to say other than, in the middle.

    4. I didn't find this book as compelling as Nina's War or Peppermint Pig but it did have many similar themes including children misreading adults and adults underestimating children. In this book a group of friends come together to help a boy they aren't even sure they like.
