The Gun

(1 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Barrington Stoke Ltd

Deep down, Jonas knew that he should never have taken the gun home: should never have hidden it, should never have shown it to Kamal and should definitely not have let him take it away.

When the inevitable happens and people start to get hurt, Jonas tries to put things right but finds himself caught up in a spiral of events he cannot control.

A vivid and frightening portrayal of a young life dominated by gang culture, written in accessible language with an authentic voice.
