Furious at being moved to the country by his Ma, fourteen year old Bobby thinks of nothing but getting back to the city; back to the life of drink, drugs and driving stolen cars. Reluctantly though, he’s drawn into the country ways and, helping on a local farm, he finds he’s calmed by discovering things he is good at. Gradually, Bobby begins to take stock of his new life and to reflect on the old. A multi-layer plot combining new and age-old mysteries makes a rich setting for a moving, thoughtful and non-judgmental story about the conflicting pulls of adolescence.
