Thank you so much for the book, I really enjoyed it. What I liked about the book is that it was set in Ireland and I like books about where I am from. My favourite character is Alan because he is from Dublin and I am from Dublin. My Mam is from Tipperary, and we both love hurling, and every time a town in Tipperary came up, I said to my Mam, “Is that a real town in Tipp??”

I liked when the boys found out where Rocky and his gang had their hideout! The whole story was very exciting and a great read overall. However, there were some bits I didn’t quite understand, like some of the words used for explaining stuff.

I would highly recommend this book for age group: 9-14. If it was a true story and I knew Dixie, I would call over to him every day to make sure he was ok after the robbery.

My Dad loved the historical reference to Bloody Sunday and it also taught me about Bloody Sunday . I would give this book a 9/10. Overall I loved the book. Keep up the good work and stay safe.
