To Shoot or Not to Shoot

I shoot arrows, mess around in the garden, feed the birds and walk the hills.

Jackdaw Summer

Jackdaw Summer - David Almond I enjoyed this a lot. Much more than some of his more recent books. In a way the most interesting character is Natrass. The book is pretty comfortable and comforting despite dealing with some uncomfortable situations mainly because you see through the eyes of Liam - but I could imagine stepping right out of that comfort zone by putting Natrass at the centre of the book.
