Hamish is highly intelligent, highly violent, highly obssessed with Alexander the Great and he is totally out of control, esp when angry and the white noise starts in his head. He is also highly manipulative. Hamish is in yet another boys junenile detention centre where he finds himself challenged by the 'top dog' and again being anyalysised by the staff. This time he meets people who have the potential to become his real heros.

Not a read for everyone but secondary boys will find the characters and some of the action familiar. This would be a wonderful alternative text for teen boys.

Certainly it has some violent scenes but it is in context and even wimpy me was OK reading them.
