The Unforgotten Coat
Frank Cottrell Boyce
Chingis is new and different. Could this be why he wears The Unforgotten Coat? While he inspires and intrigues his new classmates it seems like his stories don’t quite add up. For example, why does he insist that there should be a light shining at all times? Furthermore, why does he overprotect his little brother to such a desperate extent? What is Chingis’ story? It seems like his classmates are full of suggestions. Furthermore, the class is eager to share all they know of Merseyside to acclimatise Chingis and his family. Fish fingers? Well, it’s a necessary starter!
Frank Cottrell- Boyce’s outstanding story was inspired by real events, people and encounters. We know this writer for the truths and inspiration included in his writing, as in Runaway Robot. Thereafter, this book tackles an urgent subject empathetically, as Alyssa Hollingworth does with The Eleventh Trade. Bookwagon recommends The Unforgotten Coat to all readers. Furthermore, we assert that this outstanding story deserves to be read, shared and appreciated.
