Rosalind Minettabout this book: This is the second of the series, Crime Shorts. Number one was Oyster: a boy with potential. Here is number two, a short story that poses a question: who is at fault? If you like to puzzle over the rights and wrongs of a situation, you should enjoy this. It doesn't seem that a crime is imminent but narrators are not always reliable, any more than helpers always help.
A boy has been found a home. Again. It is clear that it isn't for the first time. We have a small picture of what happened to the previous placements, at least from the narrator's point of view. There is quite a lot left to the imagination, and the reader can put himself into the shoes of the characters glancingly referred to. Who should our sympathies lie with?
Can we believe what is happening here? Is it just another bad luck story, or has someone been badly misused? Who exactly is the victim, who the person guilty of taking a life? Or should that be 'persons'?
