Book Review: Alone on a Wide Wide Sea by Michael Morpurgo - Reviewed by Romi Foster (25 Nov 2011)
Alone on a Wide Wide sea is one of the few of Michael Morpurgo's books that I have read, that is set for an older age group; they are usually aimed at middle grade readers, but Alone on a Wide Wide sea is a powerful, sad, deaperate call to Young Adults and Adults alike. It is an amazing and tearful at times, story of a boy torn from his family and bought to Australia, where he see's terror and hate in the eyes of Mr. Bacon, the man who is using the boys as slaves on his farm, a place they are supposed to be safe on, but are treated like dirt.
Definitely only for YA + and a suberb read!
