    READ ☆ The Savage The SavageWhen I was 22 my dad was killed in a car accident He spent 2 or 3 weeks in ICU and everyday we were told something different about his condition; variations on he might live he might die At the time my youngest sibling was 10 On the day he did die I drove my mom to pick up my sister from where she was staying When she got in the car she asked when our dad would be coming home and my mom got in the back of the car and told her that he wouldn't be coming home Seeing my sister collapse onto my moms body in sobs was hands down the worst moment of my life At some point the day he died the next I laid in bed with my mom and my sister maybe my brothers were there too maybe they were sharing another room and I saw what seemed li

    READ ☆ The Savage The SavageA boy deals with the grief over the death of his father and a bully at school by conjuring up a savage version of himself When his story and real life merge it feels cathartic to the boyThis book is very short and heavily illustrated like a children's chapter book but is much too violent for that age group But I think the presentation is too young for teens So I suppose this would be middle gradeI dislike the violence in the story and the freuent misspellings I also don't care for the illustrations which are crude raw and violent But the ending is interesting

    READ ☆ The Savage The SavageAt first I was rather perturbed by the bad spelling of Blue's original story The change in font was enough distinction from the first person narrative that I didn't really need the mistakes especially that many To me this started the story off a little forced feeling I also really wanted to like the pictures but somehow I've never been able to convince myself that I like McKean's work perhaps because like in
