About this book
An emotional, thought-provoking, hard-hitting and often funny teenage debut that will leave readers with tears in their eyes. This story of a teenager who's angry with the system, with social workers and with the mother that gave him away, is written by an author with a past experience of working in a children's home.
Eight years in a care home makes Billy Finn a professional lifer. And Billy's angry - with the system, the social workers, and the mother that gave him away. As far as Billy's concerned, he's on his own. His little brother and sister keep him going, though they can't keep him out of trouble. But he isn't being difficult on purpose.
