A compelling novel – reminiscent of ‘We Need to Talk about Kevin’ and just as disturbing. More so given the role of the adults in the novel.
Narrated by Che, the 17yr old brother of the title character, the narrative builds a picture of a disturbed young mind. It challenges us to consider the moral implications of knowing the truth and not speaking out.
I would recommend for a mature teen or senior school reader, due to the nature of the content.
