Heaven Eyes

Written by David Almond

Reviewed by Jeffrey E. (age 12)

The book Heaven Eyes is about a girl named Erin with two friends named January and Mouse. They are all orphans. They decide to run away down the river. When they get down the stream they'll meet... You will just have to read the book to find out.

I liked this book because it was adventurous, funny, and quite treacherous. Erin and her friends always liked to go on adventures. I also liked the wording in the book because it would say not just things about the adventure, but they explain other things while they're talking. It even caught me by surprise sometimes because they said something like "let's go swim" out of nowhere. I liked this book because I could feel myself being in their situations. Even at the end I could feel the friendship broken up.

I think this book is recommended for the ages of 9-14 because it has some parts that are hard to understand. This is a great fiction book to read. So I hope you get a chance to read it!
