This is a review by my friend, Sophia.
The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson:
The goldfish boy is so gripping that your digging your nose right in it. The goldfish boy is about OCD; obsessive, compulsive disorder. It’s about a boy called Mathew who hates germs. Every corner has been sprayed with anti-bacteria spray every couple of minutes. It was so bad, that his anxiety about getting sick stopped Mathew from going outside. All he did was sit next to his window and take notes. Mathew wouldn’t even go around the dinner table. There was times where he just didn’t know what was wrong with him. If he felt like he was too close to someone, he would sweat or even faint. Until one day a toddler next door goes missing and it’s up to Mathew and his friends to find him by solving clues.
If you decide to get this book, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
5 stars ✨✨✨✨✨

Brilliant review – what is the recommended age range?
10 + I read it quite a while ago now. Anybody above those ages or even younger can read it! It’s an amazing book that I think many would enjoy!
