Review

Things couldn’t get a lot worse for Alex Crow. His Dad is a murderer and he’s beating up Alex’s Mum. Forced into boxing by Uncle Joe, Alex becomes a brutal underground cage fighter, and at the age of 11 is known as the school psycho. Impressed by Kyle’s art, Alex tries to become friends with Kyle and Gareth. The trio make a hideout in a hidden cave, but when they start a fire, things go horribly wrong and the police think Alex is to blame.

A tense, aggressive, but moral tale of boys on the brink of adulthood.  Dysfunctional families, brutal behaviour, ghost stories and loyal friendships all feature in this gripping read about a boy faced with difficult decisions.
