Journal Entry 1 by winglamelemonwing from București, Wallachia Romania on Monday, February 25, 2013
Billy Casper is a boy with nowhere to go and nothing to say.

He is part of the limbo generation of school leavers too old for lessons and too young to know anything about the outside world. He hates and he is hated. His family and friends are mean and tough and they're sure he's going to end up in big trouble. But Billy knows two things about his own world. He'll never work down the mines and he does know about animals. His only companion is his kestrel hawk, trained from the nest and, like himself, with the will to destroy or be destroyed.

Finished this impressive book during my holiday. Sensitive and very well written, an unexpected (for me) addition to the 1001 list a.k.a. a book I would probably have never chosen from the sales pile if it wasn't for the list.

Will travel to Lamilla on Monday, as she chose it from the greenbadger's Alphabet VBB.

Journal Entry 9 by wingBoekentrolwing at Leeuwarden, Fryslân (Friesland) Netherlands on Thursday, December 05, 2013
This book arrived safely with me today. Thanks, Lamilla, for sending it out. Like lamelemon, I would never have picked it, if it hadn't been on the list. Look forward to reading it.

Will see if there's a copy in the library yet. If not, or only one, I'll donate it to the library when I'm done reading.

Journal Entry 10 by wingBoekentrolwing at Leeuwarden, Fryslân (Friesland) Netherlands on Friday, August 12, 2016
A very interesting book.
Hard to read at times, when the story I was reading suddenly hit home: maltreatment, hunger, loneliness.

I loved the way it was written. Billy's enthousiasm for his hawk nearly spat from the pages. A quick read, but very rich.
