Nobody Saw No One

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Citizen Digit survives by staying below the radar and only looking out for number one. So he surprises himself when he offers a roof and gainful employment (shoplifting) to his old mate from Tenderness House Residential Unit who he finds living on the street and eating from bins.

But the boys have a shared knowledge of unspeakable goings on at Tenderness and before long the evil they thought they had escaped creeps back to try and claim them.

This witty, gritty and disturbing dual narrative story of abuse and exploitation starts as a modernised retelling of Oliver Twist but evolves into a cutting edge contemporary exploration of a care system in crisis and the determination of victims to survive.

Contains graphic violence - may not be suitable for younger readers.
