The first fifty pages of this book were particularly intense - I found myself being pulled into the feelings of the main character quite quickly. The book delivers a very unusual start, one of intrigue and mystery, which the author is renowned for from her excellently written, previously published books.
The story is well written and an absolute joy to read. The book is filled with many beautiful analogies, like the exquisite feeling of gentle rain tapping you on the shoulder every time you encounter one of them. The story is told through the eyes of a young boy named Zoomy. He's a boy that struggles with OCD and battles with pathological myopia. The depiction and description of Zoomy enables you to be sucked into his world, drawing you deeply into the plot and leaving you totally engrossed.
A boy in a small town who has a different way of seeing.
