Winner of the 9+ catergory of the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award and shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award Amir is mad. He's crazy. But the hospital wouldn't let a crazy person in. They must have interviewed him and checked his qualifications. But maybe he didn't even meet them? Maybe he hasn't even come from India. He might have arrived on an alien spaceship and snuck in here in the middle of the night.  Eleven-year-old Joe can't remember a life outside of his hospital room, with its beeping machines and view of London's rooftops. His condition means he's not allowed outside, not even for a moment, and his few visitors risk bringing life-threatening germs inside his 'bubble'. But then someone new enters his world and changes it for ever. THE BUBBLE BOY is the story of how Joe spends his days, copes with his loneliness and frustrations, and looks - with superhero-style bravery, curiosity and hope - to a future without limits. Expect superheroes, super nurses and a few tears from this truly unique story.

A boy has a severe immune disease and has lived in a hospital room his whole life. He dreams of going outside but that would require a very expensive NASA space suit to keep germs away. The chances of his dream coming true are next to zero, until a quirky nurse walks into his life.

The premise of the story is very interesting. Curious people are fascinated by the unusual lives people live. There are some great themes in this one, especially resilience, acceptance, and risk-taking. The problem with the story is a lack of a strong plot. 2/3 of the book is about the everyday life of a boy confined to a room. It doesn't change much, so reading about it can become boring. The sentences are simple in style, giving the main character a flat emotional affect. His feelings are described but they don't elicit an emotional response in the reader. Not sure the typical tween reader will stick with it unless he/she has a strong interest in the subject matter. ( )

Being poked and monitored continuously and stuck inside an almost 100 percent air quality hospital room in London, all day, every day, is not the life any eleven-year old-boy would want. Born with a rare immunodeficiency disease, this has had to be Joe’s life for as long as he can remember. All he wants is a normal life in the outside world with his sister Beth, his last surviving relative since his parents died in an automobile accident. He takes classes online, his sister visits as much as she can (although she has to move to Edinburgh) and he Skypes with Henry, another boy with the same illness in America. Life outside the hospital might kill him, but what if…? Along comes hope in the form of a new zany, nerdy, nurse named Amir who introduces him to new adventures and opens the door (and his heart) to exciting possibilities. Funny, sweet, triumphant, heartfelt; I loved this book.

Joe was born with a terrible genetic condition where he has no immunity. For 11 years of his life, he has lived on the top floor of a hospital in London with only 1 window overlooking the outside world. To make matters worse, his parents were killed a year or so ago and now he only has the doctors and nurses and his sister Beth for company. On Skype he talks to another bubble boy like himself called Henry who lives in the USA.
His day is dominated by figures Heartbeat, temperature, room temp, oxygen levels, white blood cell counts. But Joe's life is about to change - his sister is off to Scotland to do an internship so he won’t see her everyday, Henry is going to do a walk in a mall protected in a suit made by Nasa and he has a new nurse who seems a bit strange - he believes in aliens, installs 12 Tvs in Joe’s room and hooks up cctv from the hospital as well as 800 plus channels.
A very moving story about isolation and loss and the people who care for the critically ill. ( )
