This book really crept up in me The early chapters were a bit of a slow burner but it really got under my skin and I had to read on The great thing about it is the mixture of gritty realism the fact that Aiden's family seems to be disintegrating and the growing sense of the otherworldly and the culmination of an ancient storyHaxforth is a great character and slow reveal of his story kept me hookedThis really is a great YA book and a great debut

StolenIn the early morning Aidan chases after the thieves hellbent on getting it back When he reaches the abandoned factory where they’ve stashed his bike he has moments to grab it and escape But he finds than j. 35 No SpoilersThe sentences were constructed rather lazily when the book started off I thought it consisted of way too much conjunctions There were no use of italics to signify the protagonist's thoughts either About zero humour and jokes were used and the whole magic part wasn't even on my blurbApart from that the story itself was definitely well constructed Some characters were kind of left out though It was really interesting to read and even hard to put down at some points Great uses of imagery and personification

Why I Went BackNominated for the Carnegie MedalLonglisted for the Branford Boase AwardAidan needs his bike to deliver all the mail Why I PDF his postman dad’s been hoarding since his mum was sectioned But his bike’s just been. I received a digital copy of this title from the publisher via NetgalleyTen Second SynopsisAidan's mum has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and is languishing in a psychiatric hospital while his dad has given up the ghost as a postal worker and is letting undelivered mail pile up in their garden shed When Aidan tries to recover his stolen bike in the middle of the night he discovers a secret that threatens to overshadow even the terrible cloud hanging over his familyComparisons to David Almond’s Skellig will be obvious after reading this book given the whole “troubled boy discovers ancient being in an abandoned warehouse” plotline but there is plenty to enjoy about Why I Went Back on its own merits For a start while the plots might be similar in some ways Clammer’s narrative is a lot edgier featuring a young lad who isn’t afraid to get into a bit of trouble provided it gets him where he needs to go Aidan is an immediately likeable character in that while he does indulge in some dodgy behaviour to achieve certain ends he also has insight into why he’s doing what he’s doing and takes on the responsiblity to make changes in his own lifeThe book swings a bit between totally mundane problems such as Aidan coping with a mother in a psychiatric ward and a father who has checked out of his own life and problems of a mystical variety such as what to do with the strange old man Aidan discovers being held prisoner in a warehouse by a group of local thugs I found this to be uite a satisfying blend of story threads that kept the narrative moving and allowed Aidan’s story and his friendship with Daniel to be revealed in layersThe ending neatly ties up the loose ends and provides a bit of hope for the future using a juxtaposition of ancient magic and good old fashioned hard work I’d recommend this one for readers of YA looking for an edgy sometimes dark sometimes funny story with a believable male protagonist and a touch of the old magic to shake things up
