Product description

Shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize 2017

Shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award 2017

It’s 1981, a year of riots and royal weddings. The Dukes of Hazzard is on TV. Curly Wurlys are in the shops. And trying to find a place in it all is nine-year-old Leon. He and his little brother Jake have gone to live with Maureen. They’ve lost one home, but have they found another? Maureen feeds and looks after them. She has wild red hair and mutters swearwords under her breath when she thinks they can’t hear. She claims everything will be okay. But will they ever see their mother again? Who are the couple who secretly visit Jake? Between the street violence and the street parties, Leon must find a way to reunite his family…

‘Vivid and endearing – a very powerful book.’ – Emma Healey, bestselling author of Elizabeth is Missing

‘Authentic and beautiful, urgent and honest, this novel makes room in your heart.’ – Chris Cleave, bestselling author of The Other Hand
