The Bubble Boy by Stewart Foster is undoubtedly the most brilliantly written book I’ve read in a very long time. I was transported into the story and lived it right along with the main character Joe.
This is the story of Joe, an 11 year-old boy who suffers from a life-threatening Immune Disorder. He has spent his entire life in a sterile environment in a London hospital. The tiniest germ could kill him. He is supported by his older sister Beth, who is his only family. He keeps in touch with his only friend, Henry, who is a boy with the same illness and is also living in a ‘bubble’, via the internet.
Joe’s life changes when he meets his new nurse Amir. At first Joe thinks Amir is a bit strange, but they develop a strong bond that sees Amir making Joe’s life-long dream come true.
This breathtaking tale will have you living every moment through the characters. You’ll laugh, cry and feel complete joy as you travel on Joe’s journey, experiencing all of the same challenges he faces. A massive 5 ***** stars for The Bubble Boy
