Book review by Daniella
“It was 7 minutes after midnight. The dog was lying in the grass in the middle of the lawn in front of Mrs. Shears’s house. It’s eyes were closed. It looked as it if was running on its side, the way dogs run when they think they are chasing a cat in a dream. But the dog was not running or asleep. The dog was dead.”
Christopher Boone is 15 years old and lives in Swindon, England with his dad because his mom died 1 ½ years ago. He knows all the prime numbers up to 7,057. One night when he was taking a walk, he saw Wellington, the neighbors dog, but he was dead. Christopher is going to take his A level maths this year, but not before he finds out who killed Wellington. When he finds some strange letters one afternoon, he questions what really happened to his mom and what might have happened to Wellington. Are these mysteries related? And though a dark question, is he safe?
