Cloud Busting
by Malorie Blackman

Author: Malorie Blackman
RRP: £6.99

Cloud Busting is the heart-breaking and touching tale of 2 boys named Sam and Davey. Sam is an obnoxious, narrow-minded bully, and Davey is an open-minded, caring boy who sees the best in everyone. The story begins right after Davey has left Sam's school, and their teacher wants each of them to write a poem - thus the book is written in haiku, from Sam's point of view.

Sam and Davey become best friends after a near-death accident with a car. Davey's way of looking at life is soon shared with Sam, and they have great fun together, until Davey disappears forever. This is about Sam and Davey's time together, and how much one boy affected another's life.

I  think my favourite part was when Davey saves Sam's life, because it shows how good some people can be, even to those who are hurting them. I didn't like the part when Sam is thinking about Davey on the hill, and how much he misses him.

The story made me feel sad, but in a good way. Some great thing happen to Sam, but nothing for Davey, which made me feel sad and happy at the same time. It made me think about true friends in our lives, and how we never value them until they're gone. It's very real, like you're standing next to Sam, and he's telling you all of this, and I guess that's why it's so sad.

I think the message concealed in the story was: value everyone in your life, because you never know when they're going to be gone. I would definitely recommend it to those looking for a bit of a change in what they read, because this book will change your life forever.
