Martha Sunday I was on edge till after morning church ew, I knew I could relax. Though it was the usual dreary Sabbath, it felt really different because of Scott. At last somebody actually liked me, enough to put himself out to be with me. It felt so good I wanted to tell someone. I wished more than ever I had Mary’s address. She often mentions her friends, and I longed to tell her about mine.

Martha is bullied at school because of her clothes and introverted personality, but Scott is also new at this school, and feels sorry for Martha. Soon he, too, is being bullied by the other kids.

In ABOMINATION, the bad guys are a religious extremist group that encourages child abuse, dictates what its parishioners wear, and regulates how they behave. It is a condemning look at a religious faction in which the families do not have television, computers, or cell phones.

Twelve-year-old Martha is not allowed to have friends, and can never invite anyone to their house...they might learn of the actual Abomination that lives in the basement.

Her older sister, Mary, was expelled from the family at age 16 for bad behavior, and now sends an occasional post card to Martha, which is promptly torn up by their father, and then retrieved and saved by Martha. Though Martha is required to feed and care for the Abomination, the identity of this creature is not revealed until near the end of the book.

When Martha realizes what has actually happened with her sister, she and Scott decide to try to contact her, and the suspense kicks into high gear as the kids defy Martha's parents to right a terrible wrong.

Swindells has crafted a compelling novel that will keep you reading to the very last page.

Ambomination is an exellent book! It is hard for me to find books that I like and this book was great from the start! Ambomination is about a girl named Martha who is very different from the other children. Her mother makes her clothes and she can't invite anyone in the house because they might find out about Abomination. This book kept me reading because I wanted to know what Abomination was and what would happen to Martha. This book was the best book I ever read! Martha is beaten by her parents and starved so I would recomend this book to anyone who wouldn't mind reading about parents who beat and starve their children and I recomend this book to people that don't like reading. Trust me this book rocks!!!!

Robert Swindells never fails to am axe. Cannot wait to teach this to my year 8 class in a couple of weeks. I will do my very best to do it justice!

What ticks me off about this book, is that it is so blatantly anti-religious, even more so than the amber spyglass. Amber spyglass was saying that god was evil, abomination is saying that christianity is destroying this kid's life. Which really isn't fair on normal christians, after all we aren't ALL extremists...
