Loose Connections by Rosemary Hayes

This is a short book (took me just over 2 hours to read) about Jake who is about 12 who has been left at home with his Gran looking after him because his dad is away abroad and his mum is having a prolonged stay at hospital. Unfortunately his Gran is losing it and he’s struggling to take care of things considering he can’t bother mum and can’t call his dad back home.

The book seemed to me to be a bit repetitive with the same stuff happening as Jake spent his days looking after his Gran as she did the same loony things, except maybe a bit loonier (although not loony in a way that was humourous, this is a serious book). Also I didn’t like the way Jake seems to black out at one point in the story seemingly out of nowhere.

The book did have an excellent ending though, an emotional one too, where all the previous goings on get tied up and things finally work out for Jake.

(I got this book through Amazon Vine. It is listed on Amazon here.)
