Reviews

A graphic but gripping account of a child’s experiences, not of the big wide world, but of his world. However, [Morton Plum] is not all that he seems.

Cha Cooper

I really effin’ loved it. You're instantly immersed in the [boys'] world. The story is gripping right the way through, building tension slowly, taking its time.
