definitely feels the weight of big brother responsibility on his shoulders To make matters worse, his baby brother is terribly ill the doctors aren t really sure what s wrong with him, and because of this, Steve s parents have to spend a lot of time at the hospital with the baby One night, Steve has a very strange dream in which angel like creatures come to him to say they ve come to help the baby As the dreams continue, Steve becomes convinced that these angels are going to save his baby brother, but what the angels have in mind might not be quite what Steve is expecting.This is definitely a very dark read It will appeal to budding Stephen King and Dean Koontz fans, and it s certainly not going to be a good choice for everyone I ve seen some reviewers state that they do not think this is appropriate for the middle grade reading level due to content there are some pretty graphic scenes and ideas I think that s really underestimating what most kids can handle In fact, this book was included in the Ontario Library Association s 2017 Forest of Reading program in the book group for kids in grades 3 to 6 My niece who was 10 at the time read this as part of that program and actually enjoyed the book a lotthan I did, so I m inclined to think that the librarians had the right idea Personally, I was disappointed that this book mixes mental illness with magical realism, something I ve noticed happening a fair bit lately I m thrilled to seeandbooks that incorporate mental illness into their stories, but when the very real symptoms get blended in with fantasy, it creates a confusing narrative about what mental illness actually is.Overall, I give this book 3 very creepy stars this is a case of good book, wrong reader i gave it a three because i liked it, but i didn t crazy like it i ve liked oppel s YA novels in the past, and i was excited that this was going to be available at BEA, but when i saw it was middle grade instead of YA i was a bit wary i m just a little too old to appreciate books for the 8 12 age range picture books, yes YA, yes, but middle grade is the overlooked middle child in my reading spectrum, and it has to have a pretty solid hook to win my this is a case of good book, wrong reader i gave it a three because i liked it, but i didn t crazy like it i ve liked oppel s YA novels in the past, and i was excited that this was going to be

the overlooked middle child in my reading spectrum, and it has to have a pretty solid hook to win my love koff Rooftoppers koff but i do think that it s a good book for its intended audience it touches upon real issues like OCD and anxiety and what happens to the family dynamic when confronted with a newborn who is very sick, and how to be a good big brother, and bravery and ingenuity in terrifying situations and all that good stuff it s about the temptation of the easy path and how sometimes struggle is better than that quick fix it s got a solid, character building message and enough action and horror to hold even a reluctant reader s attention it also has nicely understated illustrations by john klassen there s something that so perfectly evokes quiet, exhausted despair in this simple image in a way, it reads like a little brother piece to A Monster Calls it doesn t have the same emotional depth or lyricism, but there are similarities in its juxtaposition of dark supernatural elements against illness and grief plus drawings.i think kids, particularly boys, will getout of this than i did, so i would definitely recommend it for the MG crowd, but since this is my review about my own personal response, all i can say is that it didn t transcend into grown up territory the way other MG books have for me also this is probably a bad idea come to my blog a very interesting and weird tale This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Oh, how I love middle grade horror It s a very specific breed of book, you know Most people on the street might think of the Goosebumps books or similar ilk when they think of horror stories for the 10 year old set, but that s just a small portion of what turns out to be a much greater, grander set of stories Children s book horror takes on so many different forms You have your post apocalyptic, claustrophobic horrors, like People lie and say they don t want perfect But really they do Perfect bodies and minds and comfy chairs and cars and vacations and boyfriends and girlfriends and pets and children Above all, children Steve s new baby brother is anything but perfect the poor thing has a congenital disorder, and may not survive Everyone in the household is suffering from the strain, but no onethan Steve He s been having vivid, disturbing dreams of a figure standing at the end of his bed One night, h People lie and say they don t want perfect But really they do Perfect bodies and minds and comfy chairs and cars and vacations and boyfriends and girlfriends and pets and

promises that she can fix what s wrong with the baby The dream turns nightmare, though, when Steve discovers just how the creature plans to make the baby better.Though I d categorize this as mild horror it s not bloody, or insanely violent it s extremely creepy and suspenseful Jon Klassen s dark, brooding illustrations really add to the eerie atmosphere I m going to be on the lookout fortitles by this author.This is yet another great title I found in the junior fiction middle grade reader section of the library If you never venture out of the adult fiction section, you re missing out on a lot of fine books E poi, Steve, che a dodici anni si trascina dall infanzia paure ancestrali, di angeli sente di averne un gran bisogno il piccolo, il fratellino appena nato, ha qualcosa che non va, e il terrore del peggio sta logorando in fretta tutta la famiglia E cos , quando strane creature luminose iniziano a visitare i suoi sogni, spiegandogli di essere venute per aiutare il piccolo, Steve fa quello che faremmo tutti accetta la loro proposta Ma le creature non sono affatto angeli, e quando Steve lo scopre, il confine tra gli incubi e la realt non cos impenetrabile come gli adulti intorno a lui sostengono E lui l unico che pu fare qualcosa What the hell Okay, this was super weird and I loved it and would recommend it to most of my adult friends here if you also like weird and creepy stuffBut I borrowed this book from the children s library Why is something so strange and chilling being aimed at middle schoolers Anyways, great book, read it but don t let your kids read it. HOW is this appropriate for children This is intense and terrifying Not elementary school fare in my opinion Frankly, I m surprised I didn t have nightmares after finishing it Would not recommend for children under 14, sensitive children or those with anxiety, anyone with a bee allergy or anyone with an Epipen I thought this was a bizarre story with depressing, heavy themes and a blurb that provides no insight or warning as to where this is heading Here it is view spoiler A boy with an HOW is this appropriate for children This is intense and terrifying Not elementary school fare in my opinion Frankly, I m surprised I didn t have nightmares after finishing it Would not recommend for children under 14, sensitive children or those with anxiety, anyone with a bee allergy or anyone with an Epipen I thought this was a bizarre story with depressing, heavy themes and a blurb that provides no insight or warning as to where this is heading Here it is view spoiler A boy with anxiety and OCD is visited in his dreams by a queen wasp, who advises him that his dying infant brother will be replaced by a healthy baby that they are growing in a giant nest outside his window The boy, allergic to wasps, eventually attempts to keep this from happening with the help of a knife sharpening dead man, who calls him on a toy phone and leaves knives at his doorstep as the wasps overtake his home The climax is so scary but throughout there is a very ominous feel of a child trying to manage and understand challenging concepts of illness, impending death and grief without the help of parents And then there are the wasps Call me crazy, but I don t want my elementary age children reading thisand they don t have allergies or Epipens hide spoiler If you have a fear of wasps, this book will terrify you If you don t have a fear of wasps, this book will still terrify you because you ll have developed a fear of wasps Quite possibly the scariest middle grade book I ve ever read.
