Blank - blog post image

When Eric wakes up in hospital he can't even remember his own name. There's a blank space in his head where his life used to be. They tell him he was hit by a car. He's been in a coma. 

But that's not the worst of it.  Everyone seems to hate him. They say he did something terrible - really terrible. He can't believe he'd be so evil. But how can he defend himself, when his memory is a total blank?

My Thoughts

This is a gripping story; an accessible, quick read (it's fifty-four pages) that doesn't skimp on plot or talk down to the reader. 

I enjoyed it, then gave it to my fourteen year old son to read. He's not a very keen reader but he couldn't out it down! I am now off to buy him Ann Evan's other rapid read books (you can check out one of them - Kicked Into Touch - on The Bookshelf and read more about Ann and her work on my Meet The Author page .)

My copy of Blank will now go a local school library as part of the fabulous BookBuddy initiative. If you are a teacher, or a prolific reader with books to spare, do check it out and help to share the joy of reading.

The Boy At The Back of The Class

There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it. 


I loved this tweet so much I had to screenshot and save it as a notice so we can all enjoy it for a bit longer!
