Staff Review by Abi
Oliver Dalrymple (Boo) is a 13 year old science geek. He wakes up in heaven, not the kind of heaven full of angels and music, but the kind where 13 year olds from America go. The last thing Boo remembers was reaching the end of reciting the periodic table from memory. He thinks he died from a heart defect but discovers that he was, in fact, murdered. When he finds that his classmate Johnny has also been shot, they set off to try to find their killer. Is he in heaven too?
Boo is written in the same vein as The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time but is unique and original. It explores bullying and mental illness but above all, friendship and forgiveness. You will fall in love with the characters in this unpredictable, funny and heart breaking book.
