Johnny Delgado: Like Father, Like Son by Kevin Brooks - Review

Thursday, July 12, 2018

I picked this book off the shelf on Monday because I couldn't quite decide what I wanted to settle to read after I'd finished Little Boy Lost. I think I had a book hangover from it, does anyone else get that? So I just plucked this novella off the shelf. I think I got it at YALC... Yes, I did, I bought five of these dyslexia friendly books from the Barrington Stoke stall there in 2016. I've read a couple of them and I've also read one of Annabel Pitcher's books printed in this way. They are printed on thick paper, the paragraphs are spaced out, and they're cute short little books so are perfect for reluctant readers.

This is actually a sequel, which I wish I'd known before I'd picked it up, but not to worry. It's about Johnny, who in the first book discovered who killed his dad, seeking to get revenge. On his estate, tensions are rising between different gangs and their factions, and violence is about to erupt.

This is a well-drawn story, I liked it for a little book.
