Product description

Bittersweet bliss. Life’s not perfect (not real life, anyway), but Phil Earle’s handle on all its anguish, joy and pain makes these as darn near faultless as books get. What’s life really about? Is it the happy moments; the warm and sunny ones lighting up the picture? Or the sad and bad ones where the world crashes down on top of you? And when you’re battling the second sort without enough of the first, how do you keep making it through? It’s hard to get a balance of all those moments. But Phil Earle has done it in these powerful novels. From foster kid Billy – angry at everything – to Jammy, messed up by war in Afghanistan, his heroes are like life itself: tough but impossible not to love. (Mostly.)

  • Hard-hitting fiction which addresses key real-life issues
  • Phil Earle is an award winner and Carnegie Medal nominee
  • A brilliant and sensitive writer who is winning huge acclaim
  • Praised by top authors including Kevin Brooks and Sophie McKenzie

“Phil Earle writes starkly but sensitively… It moved me to tears.” Jacqueline Wilson

“Never less than completely gripping.” Bookbag
