Product description

Longlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2014

The author of Being Billy tears it up again in this slamming thriller. Brothers, battles and a savage ‘hero’ full of anger, just back from Afghanistan. Back from the war. Back on the British streets. Rage-driven Jammy thrives on war, but causes chaos in peacetime. His calm, quiet brother Sonny dreads the day he’ll get the news of Jammy’s death. But now, after five weeks of fear, Jammy has come home safe. Only, he’s returned a very different man to the one who left. Now it’s left to Sonny to hold things together. But how far will he go to save the brother who always put him first? Inspired by S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders and by the battles facing young soldiers all over the world, this is a devastating novel about brotherhood and sacrifice. Writing that truly pulls no punches.

Praise for Phil Earle:

“Philip Earle writes starkly but sensitively in this brilliant page-turning novel. It moved me to tears.” Jacqueline Wilson

“Moving and powerful, I loved it.” Sophie McKenzie

“A total page-turner… Spiky, brave and compassionate.” Jenny Downham
