Boys Don't Cry - Malorie Blackman What an amazing read! I still can't keep my mind out of it. I am still bemused that as much as I want to tell the tale I'll try to keep it super vague and not let you miss all the action. BOYS DON'T CRY is, as the last time I checked, the first book I read about young, single parent/s. Dante is just your 17-year-old dreamer, achiever, and typical teenager who parties and went out with friends. But then in the middle of the biggest moment he's been waiting to turn up in life, he was startled to know that he became a father. And so, the story go on...As I read, I was so sad and so happy at the same time. The characters, especially Dante, Adam, Dad, Aunt Jackie, and Emma are so very likable. I love how everyone of them are flawed in their own way and that whatever they want to do or what they want to be, they held to that with pride. I realized it is never easy raising a child but, heck even thinking of taking care of one is hard. But life's little surprises makes it more fun and exciting that it'll be part of your life that you don't want to be apart from it. That was what this book has taught me. Dante had never thought what has come his way with Emma, but he's was trying his best to cope, care and nurture her and really let her feel that she's his own. It's actually made me tear everytime he regards Emma as "my daughter", so cute! Just when you thought a family will never have a chance on a harmonious, happy life since the loss of someone very special, think of it as "You lose some, you win some." And on Dante's case, they lost their mother over her death but they were rewarded with a very lovely, beautiful angel that turns their life upside down and makes their world go round. The characters relationship to one another is very touching. How they are very concerned with one another it make me cry every time. I wish my big brother would be like that! I just realized that Emma is the only female in the household full of men. And I mean men in physicality, if you know what I mean. ;) She's the rose among the thorns, the moon among the stars, the light in the dark (yeah, I should probably stop) :)I really liked this one, scratch that, I love this one. I love how real and relatable they are that proves us nobody is perfect. I especially love the ending and that's how ending should be. They left you with your imagination to go wild and wild as want it to be. The verdict is it'll turn out great in the latter.P.S. I thought I won't like that much but ended up loving it. ☺xx
