Set in rural Somerset, Broken is the story of Jem Love, whose family is torn apart by his mother's drug taking, and whose young brother and sister are taken into care. Jem is determined to get his family back together again. But what can a 14 year-old boy do in a world dominated by adults? What he really needs is a god whom he can telephone for help, and who might just happen to have a spare angel or two to send him. He knows that's pretty stupid; God is more likely to say he's old enough to deal with the situation himself. In any case, likely candidates for the role are pretty thin on the ground. There's only Katrina Jones, a hard drinking, wise-cracking, social worker, and Spooky Jarvis, who runs foul of the law as often as he has birthdays... Broken is a gritty, provocative, coming-of-age novel that will also appeal to young adults aged 16+.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This was the most heart-rending novel I've read in ages. Beautifully crafted and expertly put together, this novel took me on a journey of abandonment, hope and reconciliation. If you read nothing else this year, make sure it's Broken."
"There are so many wonderful things to say about this book... Words flow through descriptions that leap off the page with vitality."
