The Boy Who Could See Demons by Carolyn Jess-Cooke

Slowly creeping in into my “age appropriate-mainstream” genre of books, this book seemed like the perfect book to talk about. The boy who could see demons. The title speaks for itself, doesn’t it?

Boy

This book was quite a special one. The story revolves around a 10 year old boy named Alex, not your typical 10 year old though. He had a demon. The demon’s name was Ruen.

The story telling in this book is amazing I could never keep up fast enough. Without giving away too much information (because I don’t really know how to put the story into short words), I’ll tell you only a couple of interesting things to make you want to read the book.

  1. Ruen has 4 appearances: Horn Head, Monster, Ghost Boy, Old Man.
  2. Alex goes to a shrink named Anya who soon believes that Alex does indeed have a demon latched on to him like a soul sucking parasite, except he doesn’t suck Alex’s soul, he wants Alex to take a soul of another.
  3. Ruen wrote Anya a love song.
  4. The ending was finite and left us with very little to imagine with; but alas, a little is just enough for me to think that Ruen isn’t gone.

Read it, every page; really does wonders to your noodle. If you try to skip to the back, it won’t work trust me I tried.
