The Baby and Fly Pie

by Melvin Burgess
ISBN 068980489x
Young Adult Fiction

If you know me you know I don't like horribly depressing books with no good endings. I also am not fond of books that pretend to be for children that are really too mature.

In my opinion this book is too mature for a high schooler or middle schooler. And it's so depressing.

A short synopsis: it's the future, and some homeless kids live in London. They have someone who supposedly takes care of them, but it's not a great situation. Think Ender's Game but it's an adult who takes care of them.

They find a baby and have to decide what to do from that point.

It's very sad. Not very hopeful at all.

3 out of 10.
