FOR YOUNGER READERS
Grief Angels ★★★★★
Owen, 15, has moved to a new house in a new area. His dad has recently died, his old friends have abandoned him, and now he’s all alone in a new school. At the new school, Duncan has troubles of his own – a friendship group he feels increasingly isolated from, a terror of girls. The story alternates between each viewpoint as Owen and Duncan get to know each other, the flaws in Duncan’s friends become clearer, and the truth about Owen’s relationship with his dad emerges. Highly recommended.
