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.

Our Castle By The Sea

Growing up in a lighthouse, 11-year-old Pet's world has been one of storms, secret tunnels, and stories about sea monsters.  


Teachers - have you discovered @BookPenPals? A new initiative pairing authors & illustrators with schools to make reading recommendations via postcards. They're pretty oversubscribed, but if you're interested it might be worth getting your name on the waiting list. They have some fabulous authors on board.
