I love this story and I think it so cute that boy Gahmire has someone. To any one who is deciding to get it, get it now!!!!!!!
This book is absolutely amazing - I know that every review on this book is saying the same thing, but that is because it is true - you are able to experience three versions of the same story; enabling you to gain the characters individual points of view. This is a truly unique and moving story which will indefinetley bring a tear to your eye. This book has revolutionarised the world of reading and has introduced a new way of writing. An excellent story which is impossible to put down…
Dear Olly is a brilliant story. I love how it gives you all there options and what is going on were they are. I thought it was really said when Olly’s brother got his leg blown off I felt so sorry for him. The book pulls you in and makes you read it. But don’t judge a book by its cover because the book doesn’t relate to the front cover. Its ACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is fab
