I am currently reading and loving...


The Young Team (2020) by Graeme Armstrong

Another brilliant tale of growing up in difficult circumstances

It reminds of the (also brilliant) Who They Was (2020) by Gabriel Krauze. Both books share a lot in common. Growing up on estates with high crime and violence. Both tales are autobiographical and terrifying for anyone who doesn't come from that world. Both are tales of redemption.

Incredibly the authors seem to know each other...

Finished!


Having recently read, and been blown away by Who They Was (2020) by Gabriel Krauze, along comes another teenage gang inspired masterpiece also published in 2020.

The Young Team (2020) by Graeme Armstrong shares a lot in common with Who They Was. Both authors grew up on estates with high levels of crime and violence, and limited opportunities for the people that live there. Both tales are highly autobiographical and terrifying. Both are, ultimately, tales of redemption.
