Abomination starts as a book about a religious cult. As the story unravels though you come to realise in essence this book is a simple love story. Martha who is 12 is different from other kids —no TV, no computer, no cool clothes, and especially no friends. That is until she meets Scott a new boy in the school.
Both characters are engaging and well written. This is my second Robert Swindells novel and I was not disappointed. The cults rules dominate all Martha’s life but not as much as the secret her parents are hiding. Abomination is in the cellar and cannot be revealed. As Scott and Martha become closer will Abomination be revealed?
The story charts the struggle Martha has. With both juggling her families rules with her blossoming friendship with Scott. Every page turn takes us closer to the conclusion. This book is a real page turner I could not put down. The quick pace and intriguing plot makes it a must read for all ages.
Anyone who likes a thrilling read that keeps you guessing to the end must read Abomination. I will be picking up more from this author. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
