Who Wrote It?

Sally Christie’s first job, nearly thirty years ago, was with a publisher of children’s books. While she was there, she had a go at writing herself and (cunningly calling herself Syd Carter) sent the story to an editor in her own office. It was accepted. She has grown up a lot since then, with two notable results: She thinks that The Icarus Show is a much better story than Syd’s was, and felt able to submit it to David Fickling Books under her own name.

What's It About?

Alex has worked out a fool proof way to avoid being picked on. Don't React. It's so simple, it's brilliant! David does react and becomes an outcast, nicknamed Bogsy. He's branded a weirdo and Alex is determined to avoid the same fate. But one day, Alex gets a note in his bag that forces him out of his safe little world. Who sent the note? And is it true - will a boy really fly? A powerful story about friendship, loneliness and a strange kind of genius...

Fact File

Sally is the daughter of author Philippa Pearce, who wrote the children’s classic Tom’s Midnight Garden.

Your Reviews

Laura from Corpus Christi Catholic College:

I loved the depth of understanding found in this book. The themes can be quite upsetting if you fully understand the plot, but I believe that it is important to include these in books to alert people of signs or to know that if they are feeling this way then they are not alone. I love this book, however, it is not my favourite so far, but it is a good competitor.

Laura gave The Icarus Show 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Remade by Alex Scarrow.

alicia from leeds east academy:

Dan from Prince Henrys Grammar School:

I liked the Icarus show a lot it was fun and exciting. I liked the ending and found it very relatable. I think it could have been a bit more descriptive and longer but art from that I loved ir

Sophie from Leeds East Academy:

This book is a heartstopping mystery and makes you question yourself. I would recommend this book to anyone with a investigative mind.

Sophie gave The Icarus Show 4 out of 5 and now plans to read A Seven Letter Word by Kim Slater.

Abraham from Corpus Christi Catholic College:

I think this book was quite relatable since it shows somebody's school life .It also touched upon difficulties in school such as name calling and bullies. I think this is quite clever how it shows an insight on how the main character deals with all these problems.

The book could have been better if it was a bit longer and went in more detail with the characters.

Abraham gave The Icarus Show 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Death or Ice Cream? by Gareth P Jones.

Emily from Corpus Christi Catholic Collage:

I must admit the book is good. Not personally one of my favourites however the storyline and plot twists are rather creative. My only criticism is that small details that are unnecessary get dragged on and the book is just to slow for me. On the other hand the book is exciting because it has a bit of mystery yet also myth mixed together.

Emily gave The Icarus Show 3 out of 5 and now plans to read A Seven Letter Word by Kim Slater.

Isipho from The Co-Operative Academy of Leeds:

I love the book Icarus show.Every page of this interesting book pulls you in as you get deeper into it.It is filled with a lot of cliff hangers that will leave you in a mind changing state of what you think will happen next.The characters in the book have a lot of different personalities that could remind you of characters in other books. I rated The Icarus Show a 4 because of all the detail, the dialogue and the different points of views in the book from different characters.It is a really easy book without hard words for children to read or sound out.It would be fun for children of all ages to read.I like this book because as you carry on reading it is like you are actually in the book as if you are a character.

zahra from allerton geange:

it was a really good book. it expressed how most people try to stay out of trouble. it was also quite emotional at the end

Helly from Royds:

This was an okay book. It wasn't really my type of book, so I found it quite boring. It had an okay story line,but it was kind of all predictable and I could just tell what was coming. I don't like this book, but other people would probably like it.

Helly gave The Icarus Show 2 out of 5 and now plans to read A Seven Letter Word by Kim Slater.

Aliesha from Royds:

I thought this book was predictable, and although it had interesting story line, i kind of expected everything that happened. This is about a boy who just wants to escape trouble, until he finds a note in his bag, "do you believe a boy could fly". I gave this book a 2/5 as i found it confusing at times plus not much happened, there was just a lot of description.

Aliesha gave The Icarus Show 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Death or Ice Cream? by Gareth P Jones.

Esme from King James's:

I loved the storyline in this book and how they used the Greek myth (Icarus the boy who flew too high) as a factor throughout the book. I loved the ending as I found it unexpected and it really finished the book off well. The idea of making the wings was ingenious and also the conflict in Alex's mind between Alex being friends with Bogsy or fitting in was a vital part of the book. It relates to the modern world as nowadays children feel they need to express their individuality.

Esme gave The Icarus Show 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Remade by Alex Scarrow.

Millie from King james's:

I think this book was a bit predictable and I guessed what the twist was but I thought the characters were well described and I though bogsy's situation is something people experience and I though it was fun thinking how a boy could fly. Also I thought it was good how she mixed a myth type of story with real life situations.

Luca from The Grammar School at Leeds:

I was ok but it could have been better.

I loved this book It was really good but certain pages were dragged on when it was not needed I think the book would run so much smoother if it wasn't there at all

Maaria from The Co-Operative Academy Of Leeds:

I really like this book because it was very good and if I would rate it I would give it 10 out of 10 because it is that good

Maaria gave The Icarus Show 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Death or Ice Cream? by Gareth P Jones.

Tabbie from King James's School:

The Icarus Show isn't the usual type of book that I would choose to read, but I found that I really enjoyed it and would happily read more books like it.

I really liked the fact that there was so many different layers to Bogsy's character and that throughout the book you were constantly finding out little things to piece together the jigsaw puzzle of his story. I was on the edge of my seat to find out what happens to him.

My only criticism is that you could very easily work out what was going to happen and the twist was pretty obvious from the middle of the book onwards.

Tabbie gave The Icarus Show 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Death or Ice Cream? by Gareth P Jones.

Othniel from Ruth Gorse academy:

The Icarus show was good and funny as well.I recommend it to all 11 year olds to read and see if you can achieve whatever you want to if you try.

Othniel gave The Icarus Show 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Death or Ice Cream? by Gareth P Jones.

ALANIS from THE RUTH GORSE ACCADEMY:

THIS BOOK WASN'T MY TYPE OF BOOK TO READ HOWEVER I FOUND IT BETTER THAN OTHERS.I THINK AS YOU GOT MORE INTO IT ,IT BECAME BETTER.

ALANIS gave The Icarus Show 1 out of 5 and now plans to read A Seven Letter Word by Kim Slater.

Angel from The Ruth Gorse Academy:

This book was rated three out off five because some off the book was good,other parts were boring to read and other parts got a little confusing.

Angel gave The Icarus Show 3 out of 5 and now plans to read A Seven Letter Word by Kim Slater.

Amelia from Ruth Gorse Acadmey :

I think this book is interesting because I did not believe that the boy could fly at first but as I read on, it just got more mysterious. How can this boy fly?

This is the mysterious question that attracted me to The Icarus Show. My first thoughts were that this book would be about myths and mystery, but it turned out to be more mystery than myth!

I think this is a 5 star because it make you think more and how he can achieve a such a thing .

If I wrote this I would change it because I would like it to have the same amount of myth as mystery I would make it more mythical by making unusual creatures called the 5 headed cyclops.

Amelia gave The Icarus Show 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Remade by Alex Scarrow.

Panashe from Leeds West Academy:

I found the book quite intriguing and didn't find it difficult to relate to the characters. I believe it is a extraordinary story about friendship, family and trust It has a heart melting ending.I would definitely recommend the book to anyone.

Phoebe from King James's School:

This book was very interesting especially in the way the main character Alex saw the world. To me he seemed pretty clueless about many things particularly about doing the right thing. My favourite character was Bogsy because I found him very misunderstood.

Maddie from Roundhay School:

This book was fast to read cos i read it in a few days. I love the plot and characters because they were sooo creative. the only part that could be better are the parts that are a little confusing. people who love adventure mystery and friendship will love the icarus show by sally christie. dont react, its brilliant!

Maryam from Allerton High School:

I liked this book a bit. The part about the book I didn't like was that it took ages to figure out what the letter was about. One thing I liked about it was the plot.

marnie from royds:

I give this book at a 4/5 because i found it to be very interesting but also at times quite confusing. i found that through ought the book it had very good ways of catching your attention with all the twists and turns that occurred putting you on the edge of your seat. At some points it was like been on a roller coaster of all emotions. I really recommend this book to anyone who loves a good book that grips your imagination.

Millie from Royds:

River from Royds:

This book follows the life of Alex Meadows, and how he reacts to hos current world, filled with mystery. This book is my favourite, so far. It is filled with descriptions that add to the simple, yet, complex world. The narrative is interesting, and I loved reading about how alternate characters establish relationships. I would recommend this to everyone.

River gave The Icarus Show 5 out of 5 and now plans to read The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.

Gabrielle from Royds:

This book is fantastic to read it challenges you to read and also builds tension as well as using techniques to show the amazing skills that Sally Christie.I really like the description and techniques used to develop this amazing book.I would recommend this book for children aged twelve to challenge them and improve their own reading age and read out of their own comfort zone.

Gabrielle gave The Icarus Show 4 out of 5 and now plans to read A Seven Letter Word by Kim Slater.

Hannah from King James's school:

this book was brilliant. the plot was very original and the style of writing reminded me of "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time" -which is easily one of my favourite books of all time.And it dealt with quit a serious real life issue in an imaginative yet realistic narrative.

Hannah gave The Icarus Show 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Remade by Alex Scarrow.

Jess from King James's School:

I quite enjoyed this book. I really liked the plot as I felt like it linked to Greek Mythology and I really like that genre. However I did find it a little bit predictable and the pace slowed down a bit in different places in the book. I did enjoy this book and I would like to read more like it.

Kyle from Leeds West Academy:

This book was very interesting, it made me want to read more as I was engaged in the storyline, it had mixed emotions. I wish I wrote something like this because it is inspiring, I noticed that it is associated with todays society I really enjoyed it and would definitely read it again, I recommend that people should read this first.

Kyle gave The Icarus Show 5 out of 5 and now plans to read The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.

Laura from Corpus Christi Catholic College:

I liked the idea of this book and how it addresses a main issue of today's society and how we have to deal with it; loneliness. I enjoyed the story line, the plot and the understanding of children's feelings about their school life and home life and how they link together in a way other people may find hard to understand. My only criticism is how slow the story goes, even though it needs to to give small hints the plot, but the smallest, unnecessary points are dragged out to the bitter end. A good book, but not my favourite in this year's selection.

Laura gave The Icarus Show 3 out of 5 and now plans to read A Seven Letter Word by Kim Slater.

Tom from King James's School :

I enjoyed the outsider view on events in the book especially when looking at Bogsy. I thought that it could have included more of a storyline, but I liked the fact that at the end there was a chapter in what I can only presume is Bogsy's words. I think we can then see the other side to the story.

Tom gave The Icarus Show 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Remade by Alex Scarrow.

Marnie from Cardinal Heenan CHS:

I really liked the way that Sally Christie wrote this book, however I wasn't too keen on the story line. My favorite part was at the end where everything tied up.

Marnie gave The Icarus Show 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Death or Ice Cream? by Gareth P Jones.

Mrs Hall from Benton Park :

I really enjoyed this book and I think it had a message about not really knowing how someone is really feeling on the inside. Alex was an interesting character as he seemed a bit different to the other characters in the book. I hope Bogsy got the help he needed in the end.

Mrs Hall gave The Icarus Show 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Remade by Alex Scarrow.

Amir from Roundhay Secondary School:

Although this book was interesting to read it is really hard to get into it and it is quite difficult to understand at the start.

Millie-may from Bruntcliffe academy:

At first I thought this book will be boring because it looked like a boys book. However, when I started to read it I couldn't put it down due to all of the suspense. I also felt empathy. Overall, the book was good

Millie-may gave The Icarus Show 4 out of 5 and now plans to read The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.

Elisha from Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School:

This book is not one of my best reads but, it is OK. I read a bit to my mum and she seemed to enjoy it. I like the bit when the friendship between Bogsy and Alex is on the line because of a misunderstood fight.I also love the Idea about Icarus because the fact that a boy could fly with wings is overwhelming. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a book that is not very tense. This is my last book in the book awards.

Elisha gave The Icarus Show 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Death or Ice Cream? by Gareth P Jones.

Miss Burns from Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School:

Sam from King James's school:

I really enjoyed this book and I feel that I can relate to the main character Alex,as he is about my age and has a very inquisitive side. I think that the end was written very well, it was full of suspense and surprised me, I was amazed at Alex's bravery and it made me want to finish the story to find out the end. I also like Maisie's character, because her little mannerisms remind me of my own grandma.

Sam gave The Icarus Show 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Instructions for a Second-Hand Heart by Tamsyn Murray.

Ella from Bruntcliffe Academy:

When I first saw this book I must admit, I didn't think it would be particularly good. However, due to my new love of reading, I have learnt not to judged a book by its cover (excuse the cliché).But, as I started reading I felt an urge to continue, despite my disliking of the main character Alex Meadows, and his vanity. overall, the twists and turns, as well as the odd bit of foreshadowing, was intriguing, and so I couldn't stop myself from reading on. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and also the plot. However, I felt somewhat distain towards Alex, for some unexplainable reason. Nonetheless, I would converse with my friends about this book, with pleasure.

Ella gave The Icarus Show 3 out of 5 and now plans to read The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.

Piotr from Bruntcliffe Academy:

I rated this book 4/5 because I liked the way that she built up pressure onto the reader, about who writes the secret notes and letters.Also I liked that she explains things in between the lines to the reader. The thing I liked the most about this book was that the secret person, the one spreading the word about a boy that was going to fly was so close to them and they didn't realize it.

Piotr gave The Icarus Show 5 out of 5 and now plans to read The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.

Josh from Bruntcliffe Academy:

I gave this book a 5/5 because Alex Meadows had to go on a mystery because while he was getting on the bus a letter what had the name YOU on was put inside of his bag with a white feather. He always was determined to tell maisie about all his finds and sometimes he was talled to go back but he really wanted to see her and tell her so he snuck around back to tell her. I also like Alex Meadows reaction was when he found out that his neighbour who lived in Alex Meadows old house called Bogsy was actually Icarus.

i think this book is a very interesting and i like the fact that it written from a young boys opinion. i thi9nk that this book could be improved by the vocabulary because your choice of words were very basic. i think that sally christine should write another book an the same topic. i would highly recommend this to a friend.this book definitely gets five star from me.

louis from Bruncliffe Academy:

The book was amazing by far the best book I have ever read. it was a very interesting book and would be a book I would read again. the main character is Alex Meadows and he likes to visit Maisie at the laurels but the people at the laurels are lying to him saying that she is ill. they named a character called Bogsy and he got that name because he didn't trip over Alan Tydman so they called him bogsy. whereas there was a brighter side of him as they found out that he was the Icarus.

Oliwia from Cardinal Heenan High School:

This book was interesting.It's kind of weird that Bogsy and Alex Meadows chewed the gum,and then stuck it on to the feathers.It's like they didn't have glue or tape.I'm not sure what else to write about this book.But this book was quite weird and interesting.

Alex from King James's school:

This book had many plot twists throughout the gripping tale. The way that Greek myths are entangled through the story is extremely clever. Icarus has been modernised beautifully by Sally and is a great read, however it took a while to get going and (in my opinion) the ending was quite abrupt but still makes your heart melt at the goodness in the world. That being said this was a truly inspired idea!

Alex gave The Icarus Show 3 out of 5 and now plans to read A Seven Letter Word by Kim Slater.

Arthur from King James's School:

The Icarus show is mostly a book about the struggle a teenage boy, Alex Meadows, faces during school, it places an odd perspective of a boy forced to join a group of bullies in hope of fitting in. It also places perspective on a boy called David (nicknamed bogsey) who is the opposite of the main protagonist, he is a boy who refuses to fit in and conform to school and is affected from his traumatic past. Altogether I do like the book, it has done well to portray the mind of a teenage, well nearly teenage boy but I do find some things slightly odd. For example when Alex sees a backyard through a tube his mind automatically jumps to the conclusion that it is wonderland and sees the son of a dead person and assumes it is that dead person, which is strange but ok but then when he is frequently referred to as the son, Alex still thinks it is the dead person. It is a great book for children to relate to and help overcome the bully and struggle in their life.

Marinelle from Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School:

An okay read, very thrilling and full of mystery and includes a few feathers! Alex needs to find out who Icarus is before it's too late! I have enjoyed this book but it is not my style of book so that is the reason why I have rated it a three and one of the reasons I don't really like it is that it doesn't use highly extensive vocabulary and some parts are expected, but, the book is an okay read.

This book was one of my most favourite books I have ever read. I loved it so much that I read in two days!!! I loved the storyline so much but... it was really fast at the start, too slow in the middle and the ending was really confusing. Apart from this, I really enjoyed this book and I would highly recommend it.
