The Sorrowful Story Of Tom Appleby

This term my class has been reading Tom Appleby Convict Boy. The story is based on the depressing life of Tom Appleby.  I do not want to spoil it but may I say this is one of the best and most sad books I have ever read.  Here is an extract:  “Pa didn’t move.  There was a new cut on his forehead where a rock had knifed the flesh away…The sightless eye stared at nothing.”

I highly recommend this book and hope that it will be a good ending. Here is a picture of the book:
