Blog Tour: Brand New Boy

Brand New Boy by David Almond

Hi All!

Today I am on the Blog Tour for Brand New Boy by David Almond and I am here to tell you all about the book and a few reasons why I am excited to read it!.

Title: Brand New Boy
Author: David Almond
Publisher: Walker Books
Published: 5th November 2020
Source: Review Copy from Publisher
Summary: A warm and thought-provoking tale from a master storyteller, winner of the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award and author of the Carnegie Medal-winning Skellig.

“Mam, did you think George was,” I say, “a bit … weird?”
“Weird? Yes, I suppose so. But you kids are all a bit weird if you ask me. And to tell the truth, it’d be weird if you weren’t.”

When a new boy joins the class, everyone thinks he’s a bit strange, but he’s brilliant at football and loves crisps, and that’s all that matters to Dan and Maxie. However, the truth about George is stranger than anyone could have imagined … and more sinister, too. Can his new pals help him to become truly free?
