Six Foot Six – Kit De Waal ★★★★

Blurb; It’s an exciting day for Timothy Flowers. It’s the third of November, and it’s Friday, and it’s his twenty-first birthday. When Timothy walks to his usual street corner to see his favourite special bus, he meets Charlie. Charlie is a builder who is desperate for Timothy’s help because Timothy is very tall, six feet six inches. Timothy has never had a job before – or no work that he’s kept for more than a day. But when Timothy and Charlie have to collect money from a local thug, things don’t exactly go according to plan…

Over the course of one day, Timothy’s life will change for ever.

My review; Even though this is only 80 pages long this was a brilliant short read. Impacts the reader, well it did for me. Meet Timothy (Tim), he’s 21 and as soon as I started reading this I was thinking a disability or accident victim. He acts miles younger than his age which does get explained in the story. He’s so cute bless him. Loved his character.

Doesn’t lie. Tells the truth. Hates to be alone and the in the dark. But boy did he work hard in this short story and what I also loved was the fact Charlie never took advantage of him or made fun of him like most people would. One I won’t forget for a while. Lovely. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars.
