I don't know what it is about me and animal stories but throw an animal in there that is in some sort of danger or needs care then I am hooked. I couldn't stop myself from reading this book as I wanted to know that the fawn made it and would be alright. I am a sucker for that sort of thing I remember watching the movie anaconda and all I was worried about was the little monkey.

This was a great book that focused on a 10 year old girl Kirsty who felt a real connection with the animals on the hill above her house especially the deer, when a doe gets run over outside her house she must take care of the fawn herself and does everything she can to keep it a secret from her family too as she worries that the adults will want to make it into venison.

The young girl in the story was a bit different from the other kids at school so having this project made her stronger and gave her something to focus on I liked that she became a hero of sorts. In the background was the story of her mother who had depression after her sister dying and sometimes could not even get out of bed so Kirsty did everything around the house too.

I think I also connected to that story line having had a history of depression myself and in my own parents when I was a child. Kirsty imagined depression asa great grey shapeless mouth that ate you from the inside out which I thought was a great description. If you had a parent that had depression and you read this book you would probably find some kind of connection.

The reason my daughter loved this book though was well and truly because of the fawn, she herself would love to work with animals wanting to be a vet when she grows up so she loved this story!!

Product reviews for listing 1741: Matter
Written by Iain M. Banks

Product image for MatterIn a world renowned even within a galaxy full of wonders, a crime within a war. For one brother it means a desperate flight and a search for the one - maybe two - people who could clear his name. For the other brother it means a life lived under constant threat of treachery and murder. And for the sister, even without knowing the full truth, it means returning to a place she'd thought abandoned forever.

Only the sister is not what she ... more...
