Book Review: The Saturday Boy by David Fleming!

Hello Everyone 🙂 Today I am bringing you another book review. The Saturday Boy by David Fleming.


If there`s one thing I`ve learned about comic books, its that everybody has a weakness- Something that can totally ruin their day without fail.” For Derek Lamb, it was a letter. One little letter sent his dad back to Afghanistan to fly Apache helicopters for the U.S. army. All he has of his dad are his letters. All ninety one of them are stored in an old plastic lunchbox with a cool black car that has Knight Rider underneath. Apart from his comic books, his dad`s letters are the only thing he reads more than once. Derek knows which ones to read when he`s down and need a “pick-me-up. Derek knows which ones to read to make him feel like he can conquer the world. He even has one that he can read when he forgets Mom`s birthday. No matter what, he has a letter that tells him what he needs to hear. But what he wants to hear most is that his dad`s coming home.
