Review:

"Alan Gibbons is committed to writing books boys will read...No film or television could compete with the immediacy of this intense plotting." Sunday Herald

Book Description:

A boy on the run . . . '...an award-winning novel for adolescents, but it is for grown-ups, too. Its insights place the listener both inside and outside the three generations in the story... The dual narration reflecting the novel's narrative voices... [adds] an even deeper sense of empathy and reality' - Observer
