A bleakly poetic tale about one boy’s determination to save a badger cub from the destructive hands of a local gang.

When Nicky finds Jezbo and his gang digging up a badger set, there's not a lot he can do to save them. But one badger cub has escaped – can Nicky save it? A stunning and moving novella in the spirit of Kes from award-winning author Anthony McGowan.

"McGowan, as one of Britain’s most talented novelists, freights every word with truth and meaning" – The Times "[Nature] provides a moment of epiphany that resounds. Simply told, yet laced with urgency, this will spellbind" – Philip Womack, Daily Telegraph "McGowan refuses to compromise on quality, substance, or the emotional challenges that he offers readers" – INIS "An uncondescending and atmospheric novella" – CBI "This is a book about raw courage, which can be both heart-breaking and uplifting … The characters in this book are so genuine, I feel as if I know them" – The Bookbag
