A BIG story about a small boy who sees the world a little differently
Milo curled his thumb and forefinger together to make a small hole and held his fingers up to Al’s eyes. ‘Look through here. That’s what I see. Kind of, only worse.’
‘Wow, that must be amazing.’
Milo shrugged. ‘Not really.’
‘I mean, it makes you focus, doesn’t it? I bet you see all kinds of stuff that other people miss.’
Nine-year-old Milo Moon has retinitis pigmentosa: his eyes are slowly failing and he will eventually go blind. But for now he sees the world through a pin hole and notices things other people don’t. When Milo’s beloved gran succumbs to dementia and moves into a nursing home, Milo soon realises there’s something wrong at the home. So with just Tripi, the nursing home’s cook, and Hamlet, his pet pig, to help, Milo sets out on a mission to expose the nursing home and the sinister Nurse Thornhill.
I was lucky to receive an arc of this book, it is such a wonderful story about a boy called Milo who see’s wrong but does right. I had never heard of Milo’s eye condition retinitis pigmentosa before so that was really interesting to read about, I loved the fact his pet was a pig called Hamlet. I loved the plot where Milo is trying to rescue his gran who is slowly deteriorating from a care home where they are not looking after her or any of the other patients that live there. In this book you will find humour, lots of love and sadness. A truly awe inspiring read.
