The Bubble Boy

I love getting the chance to read books Daisy has bought so last week I chose The Bubble Boy by Stewart Foster Author from her bookshelf

Such a lovely story, about the amazing Joe who is stuck in a hospital room due to a life threatening condition which means he can’t come into contact with any germs.

This story is full of hope, desperation, friendship, loss and love. I borrowed this book from my daughter as I liked the sound of it. I am so pleased I did as it is a brilliantly written and inspirational story

Book Blurb
They call it a crash when the blood goes from my head to my feet, pours out into the room and drains through a hole in the middle of the floor. They call it a crash when the walls start spinning and the pictures blur. Then the ceiling turns black and the floor turns black and I don’t know which way I’m facing any more.

Eleven-year-old Joe can’t remember a life outside of his hospital room, with its beeping machines and view of London’s rooftops. His condition means he’s not allowed outside, not even for a moment, and his few visitors risk bringing life-threatening germs inside his ‘bubble’. But then someone new enters his world and changes it for ever.

THE BUBBLE BOY is the story of how Joe spends his days, copes with his loneliness and frustrations, and looks – with superhero-syle bravery, curiosity and hope – to a future without limits. Expect superheroes, super nurses and a few tears from this truly unique story.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and have recently started to listen to audio books as well to ensure I can maximise my time losing myself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us.
