Childrens Book Week Review – Six Impossible Things
Six Impossible Things by Fiona Wood
This wonderful book tells the story of Dan Cereill, a 15 year old boy whose life has been turned upside down by a series of events. His father has just revealed he is gay, left his mother and declared bankruptcy, forcing them to leave the family home and Dan to start at a new school. Dan narrows down things that he thinks could improve his life to six impossible things. The events that follow make this book very entertaining and takes you back to the dramas that face teenagers. This is a great book that anyone would enjoy, from teenagers through to adults.
