  8. My Book Review

    Malorie Blackman – Dead Gorgeous

    It has taken me one month to read Dead Gorgeous and I enjoyed every bit of it.
    Dead Gorgeous is about a boy called Liam who has a lot of troubles at home because him Mom died when he was a baby and he thinks his Dad favours his brother more than him. One day he went exploring and came across a cave. He entered a cave and got trapped. He died shortly after and turned into a ghost. Liams body was left in the cave near a hotel called ‘Phoenix Manor Hotel’.
    This hotel is run by the Clibbens family that consists of the Mum , Dad, two daughters-Nova and Rainbow and two sons- Jude and Jake . Nova is jealous of her sister Rainbow because she thinks she is much prettier than her. Nova doesn’t think she is noticed much at home because her parents are too busy running the hotel.
    Nova had a lot going on so she decided to go for a walk in the park. She unexpectedly walked into Liam. This was a shock to her as she walked right through him and realised he was a ghost. This caused her to faint.

    How would I rate this book:
    I would rate this book: 4 star
    I did not give this book a 5 star rating because although the story line is intriguing i would’ve preferred a happier ending unlike some of Malorie Blackmans other books.
    In my opinion this book is suitable for 12-15 year olds because the language is appropriate . It is entertaining and gripping because you never know what is going to happen next.
    This book isn’t suitable for a younger child as there are references to KISSING(laughter) and also because they may not understand the plot.

    Overall I would definitely recommend this book.

    Thanks for reading.
