Roxy moved onto a different secondary school from Ava. She’s left to face Spencer’s Wood Academy alone. However she’s been facing the taunters through the summer. They’ve marked her out as booking.com, aware that she and her mother and the twins live in a hotel shelter. What’s more when they see her with Tracker, it’s ‘Ava’s got a dog friend‘…. Yet Tracker seems to be the only sanctuary in a bitter, angry world.
Could it be that it might all spiral out of control so much that Ava takes matters into her own hands? Is it possible she could find her own shelter, away from Mum’s anger, the twins’ crying, Dad’s absence and then school’s hostility? At least there’d be Tracker…
Ava seeks a Little Light. Is it possible that she might find a Precious new friend at Spencer’s Wood? Might Nana offer some release from all the hurt and fear that Ava feels? Then is there time and possibility for Mum and the twins and a new life ahead? Can Ava find hope through her obstacles? It is a lot to ask…
We journey with Ava, feeling such connection, while longing for her happiness and safety. Coral Rumble seems to get right into Ava’s skin, so that we feel the love with Tracker and the ache she feels at the absence of Roxy, and then her father. The verse prose is so perfectly formed, descriptive, emotive and progressive; this is a masterclass in storytelling. Bookwagon urges readers to seek Little Light.
