100 Books in 2013: Savage

Book 7:  Savage by David Almond

This YA novel is part traditional novel and part graphic novel with its rough illustrations and drawings of the "the savage", the creation from the imagination of a young boy who is struggling with the death of his father and the increased bullying by a classmate.  Through his writing, the boy works out his issues.  A coming of age story with a little bit of other world feel when "the savage" comes out of the boy's story and takes care of the bully.
