The Icarus Show by Sally Christie . Review

This is the story about a boy named Alex. Alex used to live next door to Don and Maisie but Don died and Maisie went into a home , then he got a new neighbour called Bogsy. Alex and Bogsy go to school together , but Bogsy is getting bullied there and Alex does not help him . 
Their relationship changes one day when Alex receives a mysterious note and little by little it dawns on him who it is from.
My heart went out to Bogsy , reading about him being bullied and the lonliness that causes was heartbreaking, how he isolated himself to protect himself and what can come from this type of situation was even more terrifying. I loved Alex's elderly friend Maisie , who is a smart and loyal ally who helps these two boys understand each other better while also helping save them too. Loved this book.

I received this book for review from the lovely people over at
