Boyce does a nice job of balancing the serious elements of grief with bits of humor that add up to a compelling tale of coming-of-age and growing up. I don't read children's fiction very often, but this one was recommended to me so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Steven lives with his partner Jay and his dog in Crouch End where he dunks endless amounts of biscuits in big red spotty cups of tea whilst listening to Radio 2. While I adored Damien's saint-fixation and his brother's promiscuous obsession with finance, I felt the book ending with some moral ambiguity.

I have even talked the head into a little revamp of the library so that we can display them properly! One of the focuses of that obsession has become an interest in saints -- the lives of which populate both his imagination AND several of the key scenes in this book. An edge of my seat read that would be enjoyed by upper elementary and middle school kids, if ever I could get it past the censors.When he prays for guidance and a giant bag of money falls out of the sky, he figures God has sent it. This experience has been fantastic primarily for the children, the school and also for me (professionally).

The novel Millions takes place in the early 2000s in the suburbs of London, England and is about two young brothers in middle school and their father. This is a noteworthy book with a truly deep and emotional side to it that perfectly combines fun, adventure, and humor into the sensitive issues. However I do think the theme is very important but I think there are other book that can give the same messages but in a more interesting way.When a huge bag stuffed with more than 200,000 quid comes flying out of the sky and into Damian’s cardboard “hermitage” (i. Does the book contain anything that teachers would wish to know about before recommending in class (strong language, sensitive topics etc. A wonderful, sweet story told by a 5th-grade boy who just happens to see long-dead saints everywhere he looks. Millions is about two young brothers who come across millions of pounds and their decisions on what they do with it.

As a child I would have read and enjoyed this several times, for the simple adventure once, and then a reread for figuring out the mysteries and puzzles and the how-to of economics, and then a nostalgic reread would have given me a chance to appreciate Damian's obsession and visions. This book reads like a mad cap comic adventure/mystery/coming of age tale but is also a study in childhood grief and as is usual for this author the father son relationship is central to the plot . This book will find appeal and bring about discussion on many topics, particularly the correct way to deal with money. The end showed how throughout the whole novel the boys’ went through so much for their money and that showed a lot about how greed can control you. Damian and his brother, Anthony, have recently lost their mother, and their father is doing all that he can to raise them well.I thought the story was ok because it was touching but not to the point of other stories that are out there. I disliked this part of the book because the boys were acting juvenile and I think that they were too concerned with their hatred for anyone that threatens their mom’s place that they didn’t realize what a nice person Dorothy was. Jedna od meni dražih dečjih knjiga (u kojima mogu da uživaju i odrasli), koja je zabavna, duhovita i.

As an adult, I think I want to reread it so I can appreciate the simple adventure, because upon this (first ever) read I was wrapped up in Damian and in his r'ship with his father and brother and couldn't quite fully just enjoy the book, as it was so poignant. Millions is an interesting story about two young brothers who stumble upon a bag filled with thousands of pounds and must try and spend it before the currency is changed to the euro.What would you do if you were praying for a miracle that would make everything better, when a bag full of money falls from the heavens? Obsessed with the lives and demises of saints since the death of his mother, Damien attracts a great deal of negative attention and warranted concern around his community.
