I love and have always loved reading. I usually read one at once but at times I will read two. I have a book end which states 'Caution! Bookworms bite when disturbed.

Humber Boy B

Humber Boy B - Ruth Dugdall

Humber Boy B is a book that at times I really struggled up to carry on reading. I knew that I would be reading about children killing a child but combined with a tale of child neglect, child cruelty and 'Ben' trying to make friends and rebuild his life outside prison made it, for me, a very difficult book at times.
I did carry on reading and finished it, whilst I did find it harrowing I wanted to know the ending. Not really for me but I did think it was very well done.
