About the Author:

Melvin Burgess was born in London in 1954. He began to train as a journalist but left after six months. He has had a variety of jobs as diverse as bricklaying and silk-screen printing. An Enterprise Allowance Scheme gave him the chance to develop his writing and his books for children are very highly regarded. Melvin lives in Lancashire.

Review:

Such a book is Melvin Burgess's Junk -- Robert Dunbar Children's Books in Ireland The most talked-about children's book for years Mail on Sunday Brilliantly and sensitively written, it encompasses the raw, savage and ecstatic world of the adolescent mind... a superbly crafted and important book TES Beautifully written The Times
