Saving Daisy

Saving Daisy is the second critically novel by Phil EarleHEROIC Phil Earle's hugely anticipated third novel is out on 24 April 2013Daisy's mum is gone Her dad refuses to talk about it As far as Daisy's concerned it's all her fault As her life starts to spiral out of control panic leads to tragedy and Daisy's left aloneBut sometimes the kindness of a stranger can turn thing. LoveloveloveCan I just leave it at thatCan we just call that my reviewNo You want God sometimes you are the most demanding readers everYou will know by now how much I loved Being Billy by Phil Earle so I was practically chomping at the bit to read his next book Saving Daisy tells the story of Daisy Houghton who you will know if you ve read Billy s story I ve been thinking about how to class Saving Daisy and I m failing miserably I wouldn t call it a seuel and you know I wouldn t even call it a companion bookActually you know what I m going to use my YA reviewing power it s a real thing of course it is to say that Saving Daisy is a standalone book DefinitelyThis is Daisy s story and no one gets a look in And this is her timeOf course I loved Being Billy but Saving Daisy in my opinion was even betterI m going to avoid talking about the plot because it s good to know as little as you can before reading this book I find that this book s shocks and twists are infinitely better when they thwack you across the back of the head completely out of the blue If you ve read Being Billy you may have an inkling of what happened to her before her cameo in BB But take that inkling and throw it out of the window because mate you have no ideaThis book made me laugh hysterically This book made me so unbelievably angry This book made me want to put The Shawshank Redemption on and weep into a pillow This book broke my heartAt first I thought it was the subject matter something that is very personal to me and I thought maybe I was just connecting to it because of that and there was a chance that I was being biased But then I thought that I was doing a huge disservice to Mr Earle s writing which is the main reason my heart now lies bleeding on my bedroom floorMy favourite kind of writer is an authentic writer one that knows what they re talking about and Mr Earle s writing is 100% authentic Through my unrivalled researching skills like um Googling him and looking at his About Me section on his website I found out that Mr Earle used to work as a care worker before he became a writer And this shows He doesn t sugar coat the issues that children like Billy and Daisy have nor does he make them horrifying than they are just to make a good storyMr Earle employs a great subtlety to his writing that made this book so affective In the hands of a lesser writer Daisy s story could have got very overwhelming extremely fast I won t lie to you there is a lot of angst in this book If you re looking for neat happy endings and conclusions that come with a nice bow then I couldn t recommend this book to you You can tell that Mr Earle is a huge fan of telling uncomfortable unforgettable and realistic books that might not always be the most fun to read but they challenge the reader and really make them thinkWhich is lucky because so am II always find that there is a common criticism for authors who write for teenagers and it is how can an adult write authentically for teenagers And I won t lie some authors can t Their dialogue is cringey and unrealistic the issues are picked randomly and sensationalised because that s what they feel teenagers worry about and then some authors put horrifying cultural references shudders to show how cool they are luckily Mr Earle doesn t rely on that to show that he s a brilliant teen writer He relies on his writingBut what about a grown man writing from the perspective of a teenage girlNah he s got that covered tooDaisy Houghton was such a glorious character and I would like to be best friends with her Without the risk of sounding like a fruit loop What do you mean it s too late for that I like to judge my YA books on whether I would like hang out with the main charactersAnd with this I mind I would like to be best friends with Daisy HoughtonI m not sure how I feel about getting up early to go cliff trekking but a third of my degree was in film studies so I would be than willing to sit and watch and discuss films while I ate an entire bag of popcorn Actually no strike that I loved Daisy so much I would share my popcorn with her something that is unheard of People have lost fingers for attempting to get at my popcornWhen I looked back at my notes to write this review I noticed that as the book went on and we got to know Daisy it seemed I became and protective of her One actually reads OMG DON T YOU DARE DO THAT Well not actually because my Kindle typing is ridiculous and I was trying to balance standing on the train so it really read ohk font yu dare dp tht but the sentiment still standsI loveloveloved her and she will be forever one of my most authentic genuine compassionate broken favourite YA heroinesOK just had a skim through my review and it seems to be sponsored by the word authentic but I make no apologies because isn t that what you want in a contemporary bookIt can also be sponsored by the word British compelling horrifying hopeful brilliant powerful unflinching astonishing and OMGWHYAREN TYOUREADINGIT The latter word I feel the most aptAnd of course it s a word so be uietIt s so wonderful to find yet another British YA author who will be added to my Read Everything They Write Even if it s on a Post It listOh and before I go I just want to say that it s really refreshing to read a YA book set in Northern England It s good to see that there are authors believe in THE DREADED NORTH and not that the UK just ends after you ve left London It may be grim up here but as Mr Earle has shown it proves for brilliant storiesActually there is a part in Saving Daisy right at the end that was so wonderful and moving and gorgeous that I rushed back to read a certain part in Being Billy and it made a lot sense and made both books poignant Maybe that s me Maybe I ll bribe one of you who haven t read either of them to read Saving Daisy first and then Being Billy and see if my theory is correct Muhahahaha I m like the Dr Jekyll of YA blogging cue lightning boltsI very nearly fell out with my best friend who dared to suggest we got salty popcorn once I mean urgh

He most authoritative honest and moving account of children trapped in the care system to date' Keith Gray Scotsman 'life affirming redemptive and really just rather good' Marcus Sedgwick Guardian'Moving and powerful I loved it' Sophie McKenzie 'Being Billy was a total page turner authentic and gritty Billy's voice doesn't falter spiky brave and compassionate Jenny Downham. Since reading the fabulous Being Billy I have been looking forward to reading Daisy s story Now that I have Phil Earle has truly cemented himself as an author I will read simply because his name is on the cover I absolutely loved itThe events of Saving Daisy take place before Being Billy making this a preuel of sorts I loved finding out all about Daisy and having the story told from her point of view I adored her in Being Billy and loved her even after reading this One of the things I really liked about Being Billy was the authentic voice given to Billy and I have to say that he did it again with Daisy She s so real you can t help but get swept up in her story and feel everything she felt I felt so bad for her and everything she goes through She s so convinced that everything is her fault that she deserves to be alone Her reaction to her mother s death is understandable it must be very hard to deal with and I hated that someone used that to get close to her when he shouldn t And of course the accident would be hard for anyone to deal with add it all together and it s not surprising that she finds it hard to copeAgain it s obvious that Phil Earle has experience working with kids it shines through in his writing He has such an understanding of what Daisy and kids like her are going through the whole story is just spot on and feels completely realistic Powerfully so I so desperately wanted Daisy to stop blaming herself to find a way to see that none of it was her fault And I loved Ade her key worker and how she manages to help Daisy see the truthI can t recommend this highly enough I loved Being Billy but this managed to surpass all my expectations An absolute must read
