My Family & Other Animals


Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey

I loved loved loved this book! I love when a book makes me feel strong emotions. I laughed and cried and was angry when reading this beautiful story.

Jasper Jones was bought up by his increasingly intoxicated and abusive father, his mother having died when he was young.

He always passed the gate of Mad Jack Lionel but never stopped to listen to what he was yelling about.

Jasper went looking for a killer when he finds his friend Laura Wishart dead. He suspects Mad Jack Lionel and sets out to solve the mystery.

Charlie Bucktin is minding his own business when Jasper Jones knocks on his bedroom window late one night. And there begins a great story.

I highly recommend that you read this delightful book.
