It is a brutal read. Totally takes you in from the first page. Real criminals, teenagers out doing random things that they think makes them look big and tough. Fostering, real scenarios, its all an amazing read. A classic and sad ending. Ronnie Thompson is an epic writer of 2011 and beyond. Very few writers write like that :)

this book has some spelling errors in it but that does not affect the read. I got so much out of this book about young peoples crimes, punishment, rehabilitation and changing in to better adult definitely worth a read
Decent enough youth crime book and I enjoyed it in the main but a couple of spelling mistakes/typos near the start should have been picked up by the publisher.
