Rowan the Strange

by Julie Hearn
£6.99   paperback  Oxford University Press (2010)

Rowan the Strange by Julie Hearn How does a doctor examine a person's brain?
They won't use any knives on me, will they?

 
Rowan knows he is strange.
 
But dangerous?
 
He didn't mean to scare his sister. In his right mind, he wouldn't hurt a fly. But there's a place he can go where they say they can fix his mind...
 
Beyond the bars on the window, England is at war.
Behind them, Rowan's own battle is only just beginning.
 
This is a compelling story, set at the start of the Second World War, shows what life is like in a mental asylum for a boy, Rowan, who is diagnosed with schizophrenia. The treatments he receives are still experimental - but nobody predicts the effect they will have on him...
