Someone Else's Life

Someone else’s life-Bradd Chambers-4*  
James thinks that others have an easier life than him. They live in better houses and don’t have the stresses and strains of everyday life as he has. He teaches himself to escape his bedroom and scale up and down the wall and drainpipe to his secret world at night. A world where he is in control and can teach his school colleagues a thing or two. This is well written and may be we have all been there to a lesser degree. When we are up to our neck in something, looking at others and thinking that “they are OK, its alright for them. Their world/life/money/relationships etc are fine”.anything to be in someone else’s shoes- but little do we know what others are going through behind the mask and behind closed doors.  A world of young people finding and fighting things out for themselves, not trusting their parents or others who have been there before them. Who is the perpetrator and why does James always appear to be at the heart of the action? An interesting read.
