Lottery Boy

  Lottery boy by Michael Byrne


Bully has been out on the streets since his mum died. He lives in fear of the man that goes by the name of jinks. Jinks has a favourite pastime, to go round stealing from the homeless. When Jinks steals £20 off bully, bully thinks his luck is out. That is until he finds a lottery ticket that will change his life.

I think that Michael Byrne has really made it feel like you are bully and makes you feel sympathetic for bully at his worst times and happy for him at his best times.
I think that it is suitable for kids aged 11+.
I am going to give it a 9/10.
