Product description

How does the bruising start? Is it the booze, the neglect or the slap? Jono can’t waste time trying to work it out. Right now, it’s time to act. Julie’s only little after all, and the thing is, Ma just doesn’t seem capable of looking after them. Not now. Surely running away is the right thing to do? A powerful tale of one boy’s mission to protect his younger sister, deftly told by the Irish Children’s Laureate, Siobhan Parkinson. Raw and shocking, yet also deeply compelling, this story of child abuse will stay in your heart long after the final confession has finished.

“The central voice is extremely engaging.” Bookseller

“Believable and heart-rending story.” Independent on Sunday
