    River Boy. likes. FRESH PICKED BLUEGRASS River Boy is a band, an album, and a song. Jess knows that Grandpa and the river boy are connected, but how? Can she take up the river boy's challenge before it's too late for Grandpa? Tim Bowler's gripping narrative flows like a river itself -- gentle and calm at times, turbulent and deep at others, always fluid, always alive.

      Review of "River Boy" To review the novel "River Boy" of Tim Bowler I'll give you first a little precise summary of the content of the novel. Jess, a fifteen-years-old girl, doesn't only like swimming, she needs to swim. It's her big passion. When her grandfather, a stubborn painter, gets his first heart attack, she's confronted more and more. He has started a painting which he has titled, River Boy. Although painting is an extreme struggle the girl helps her grandfather finish the painting. She is a talented swimmer and as she helps her grandfather she begins to unravel a mystery of her own, down by the river. A moving, emotional book that leaves you thinking about it at the end/5(5).

      River Boy is such a lovely book - even more so than I was expecting. I have to agree with Jenny, who said earlier this year that Tim Bowler reminded her slightly of David Almond. Part of it is the seamless interweaving of magic and reality.

Jess frowned at the mention of the painting. She had thought about it a great deal since Mom showed it to her yesterday, though she hadn’t seen it since they’d packed it for Grandpa.

And the image that haunted her most was that of the boy, the river boy; the boy who wasn’t there. Yes, he had to finish the picture, and soon.

Chapter one ends with the departure. ***** Chapter one completely complied my expectations. There is a family. One of the family is some kind of an artist and there must be a picture calls "The Rivery Boy" and looks like the book cover.

These are the thoughts I had before, during and after reading chapter one.It didn’t start with the river boy. It started, as so many things started, with Grandpa, and with swimming.

It was only later, when she came to think things over, that she realised that in a strange way the river boy had been part of her all along, like the figment of a dream.The term 'river boy' calls to mind a free spirit; a boy impetuous, wild and fun.

William Anderson, the book's author, highlights this aspect of Twain's personality throughout the book. From Twain's tomfoolery as a youth to his wanderlust as an adult, Anderson tells of a life of adventure/5(3).
