From the comfort of my sofa

I just like to read! There is no greater pleasure than a peaceful house and a good book. I will read most genres but not sure I have the imagination to really "get" some science fiction and fantasy.

Beautiful, emotional and genuine

A Boy Made of Blocks - Keith Stuart

What an absolute delight this book is and how wonderful it is to read a positive, uplifting and thoroughly enjoyable tale about a family's voyage with a child who has autism.  I have read other books that deal with this subject recently but have found them a little disheartening and bleak. So, when the publisher contacted me to offer an early copy for review my first reaction was to say thanks but not this time.  What a mistake that would have been!  I am so, so glad that I decided to read it.

I adored watching how Alex and Sam's relationship developed through the book and delighted in how the other characters' stories played out alongside.  I also learned quite a lot about Minecraft, which I hadn't come across before as my sons only ever played FIFA Football and Call of Duty!

It has been so refreshing to read about a family struggling and succeeding in this modern world. 

Beautifully written, emotional and  genuine.  I really can't recommend this book highly enough.

Many thanks to the publisher, via Netgalley for offering me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
