The Saturday Boy- Book Review

I've recently finished reading a book called the Saturday Boy by David Fleming. It is a great book with lots of awesome characters. So,here's my review!

Derek Lamb is a boy who loves comics. Not just any comic but awesome comics. But this book isn't about Derek and his comics. This book is much more than Derek and his comics. See, Derek lives with his mom. His dad is out fighting in Afghanistan. All Derek has to remember his dad is letters and an Apache helicopter hanging on the ceiling of his bedroom. As if his life isn't already bad, Derek is bullied by his old best friend- Budgie. Budgie and Derek used to be best friends until one day, something just happened. Anyways, Budgie makes Derek's life horrible. During the school year, Derek meets a beautiful girl, Violet, who smells like apples on Fridays. Throughout the book, Derek has his awesome moments and then his horrible moments. Meet Derek, who's not a normal kid. 

"If there's one thing I've learned from comic books, its that everyone has a weakness, something that can ruin their day without fail."- Derek Lamb

 I give this book a 9 out of 10 and think David Fleming is a fantastic author. Check out his website here.
