      I have read other books by this author, Jenny Nimmo, and have enjoyed them. And Midnight for Charlie Bone is fairly easy to read - it flows well and seems friendly. The difficulty I have with this book, and the reason, I think, that a lot of people don’t seem to like it, is that there doesn’t seem to be a reason

      for the antagonists. It’s sort of like they’re mean and cruel for no reason. The school doesn’t make sense - a school for talented children in drama, music, and art, which the ‘endowed’ children also attend. It doesn’t give a reason for the endowed children to attend it. It also doesn’t give a reason for the school to be a boarding school ...

      • - it seems like most of the children live in the area and yet still board at the school. Only one boy stays at the school on the weekends, and this is because he is an orphan.

        The powers that the children have also don’t seem that useful - they seem fairly limited. And Charlie’s friend’s parents are strange - first they

        are obsessed with work, and suddenly they are back to being good parents.

        Jenny Nimmo is a good writer, in my opinion. She uses words well. But the ideas behind this story don’t seem plausible and the reasoning for characters actions don’t make sense. Several of the events in this book depend on a lot of people acting like there are no actual laws.
