  3. loved it

    If only Grandad’s memory was better, if only he didn’t keep doing dangerous stuff. These are the thoughts of Alex, the adopted child of the Smith family. In desperation to improve his Grandad’s memory and prevent him being sent to care home, he comes up with the idea of making a scrapbook of his Grandad’s life. He’s got a week to change his parents mind. The pace of the story turns up a notch in the latter half of the book. And as it became more intriguing I found it difficult to put down. With lots of help, Alex uncovers family secrets from his Grandad’s past during World War Two and at the same time facing up to his own. Alex, the hero of the story, as a special relationship with his Grandad and some of the conversations they have are very touching to read. With themes of mental illness, family secrets, grief and the terrible things it does to people, this book will appeal to a wide audience of children and adults alike.
