    PDF/EPUB Phil Earle ò Being Billy PDF ½ ò being epub, billy mobile, Being Billy KindleWoosh This book was fantastic I think my heart is still pounding from those last couple of chapters I don’t mind admitting that the majority of my knowledge of children in care is from reading Tracey Beaker by Jacueline Wilson And I know that might sound odd because Ms Wilson doesn’t really write young adult books but if you’ve ever read a Jacueline Wilson you will know that she is not one to shy away from the truth or darker aspects of life because they’re uncomfortable to read Tracey Beaker is my second favourite of Ms Wilson’s books First one if you’re interested is The Lottie Project because it’s so realistic and isn’t afraid to delve into the nitty gritty of what it’s like for a child in careAnd Being Billy? It was like Tracey Beaker amplified There were two scenes in particular the bowling alley and the house at the end if you’ve read this that I’m sure will stick with me for a long time They w

    PDF/EPUB Phil Earle ò Being Billy PDF ½ ò being epub, billy mobile, Being Billy KindleBeing Billy was a very realistic book It is clear from the beginning that Phil Earle has previously worked in care the authenticity of Billy and the relationships he has with others is incredible Though I didn't find Billy completely endearing I found him to be a very interesting character and I could see where he was coming from in a lot of his thoughts and I could admire the fact that he knew he wasn't perfect and had made mistakes I adored Billy's relationship with his siblings as it showed a sensitive paternal side of him His relationship with Ron also made for a very strong feature in the story I didn't see the twist coming which made for a really big shock it was certainly effective and emotive I can't say that this book completely grabbed my attention it didn't have me desperate to read on but it all felt very true to life which is the real uality of this book

    PDF/EPUB Phil Earle ò Being Billy PDF ½ ò being epub, billy mobile, Being Billy KindleBeing Billy was so much better than I expected it to be I found the description to be only vaguely intriguing and certainly nothing original at all I didn't expect it to be so engaging and uniue I thought Billy was an excellently developed character and had no problems empathizing with him and his whole situation While Billy is certainly not perfect he's still a good person who has just been thro

    PDF/EPUB Phil Earle ò Being Billy PDF ½ ò being epub, billy mobile, Being Billy KindleI really enjoyed this moving and poignant tale about Billy an angry young man who has spent a lifetime living in careI liked this book because I thought it gave real insight into what life is like for children like Billy and highlights an issue that many people do not give a second though to It showed how simply the effect of being in care can affect every aspects of a childs life even affecting their future aspirations and acheivementsI found Billy as character really fascinating He had this really tough front which he had built up from years of being in care and thinking no one wanted him but underneath it all he was really kind and loving towards his younger siblings and was deeply affected by all the rejection he had been through despite appearing to shrug it off Being inside Billy's head throughout the enite book was an interesting choice of narr

    PDF/EPUB Phil Earle ò Being Billy PDF ½ ò being epub, billy mobile, Being Billy KindleWow – I honestly cannot believe Being Billy is a debut novel The writing is first class and I was moved from beginning to end I am officially in love with this bookBeing Billy touches on a subject I haven’t read about much in YA literature – children in a care home Earle writes with a stark honesty and it’s uite clear he knows his subject matter inside out Some of the little stories within Being Billy’s pages can only be real life anecdotes and they really help to bring the book alive The one that springs to my mind now is the story of the hotel biscuitsI read Being Bill
