Humorous and heartbreaking debut novel with the fresh, funny, honest voice of a 14-year-old Geordie lad recounting the trials and tribulations of family life and finding first love.

Danny’s mam has a new boyfriend. Initially, all is good – Callum seems nice enough, and Danny can’t deny he’s got a nice set up; big house, fast car, massive TV, and Kim seems to really like him.

But cracks begin to show, and they’re not the sort that can be easily repaired. As Danny witnesses Mam suffer and Callum spiral out of control he goes in search of his dad. The Dad he’s never met.

Set between Newcastle and Edinburgh, this powerful coming-of-age drama tackles the issue of domestic violence head on but manages to find humour and hope in the most unlikely of places.
