LOTTERY BOY BY MICHAEL BYRNE

Reminiscent of Slumdog Millionaire, this contemporary adventure story set on the streets of London follows a boy whose luck is about to change. Since his mother’s death, Bully has lost his old life. Living rough with his dog, Jack, he can’t imagine his future. But one day, in the last birthday card she ever gave him, he finds a winning lottery ticket, a last gift from his mum that suddenly offers such hope. If only he can get to his prize on time. Life is not that simple. Bully’s struggle to survive has just got a whole lot harder. They’re after him on the streets, everyone wants a piece of him. And even if he does claim all that money, will he really be winning what he needs the most?

 

 

MY REVIEW

 In places Lottery Boy is quite a tear jerker. But a must read!
Bully’s, mother has died and Bully and his dog Jack are living rough out on the streets of London. But living on the streets of London for Bully is a dangerous game, leading him with a breathtaking race to survive. Bully pulls out from his coat pocket a birthday card that his mother never gave him. As Bully opens his birthday card to read it a winning lottery ticket falls to ground. Bully is unsure how much he has won or how to claim the money. When the ticket is scanned Bully has five days fours hours and thirty-five minutes to collect his money.  As Bully and Jack make their journey through London to collect his winnings we are taken through Bully’s sad experience of happens to Bully and Jack on the way.
Keeping in touch with readers I would like to tell you about the author.
The author Michael Byrne was once an English teacher in a secondary school. He is now a full-time writer, The lottery Boy is his first novel.
