10 years ago, Ches was left on a Cheltenham doorstep in a plastic bag, with a letter from his birth mother. The letter is his to read tomorrow, on his birthday. Ches panics, not ready to face his fears, and runs away from his unusual but fiercely loving adoptive family. Angry and scared he finds refuge for the night in a garden shed determined to avoid his birthday the next day.

He falls into the hands of his school tormentor, Raffy. Raffy disguises Ches as a girl and leads him astray on an unforgettable birthday adventure on bikes and trains to Brean Down near Weston-Super-Mare. Is Raffy a new friend or still an enemy? Both Ches and Raffy are seeking an answer to the same, universal questions - am I lovable? Am I loved? A life and death moment nudges them towards discovering some answers for themselves.

So how can Nana Lil, befuddled by too much alcohol sloshing around in her brains, be of any help to Ches? Isn't she the very last person he needs right now?

Heart-warming and vivid, Moth Boy is a compelling adventure story.

“Relevant for children as well as adults”

This is a wonderfully written story about a 10-year old adopted boy. However, it touches on many other levels of growing up, all written very sensitively from the perspective of the boy himself. It's not just a... More

I loved this book. It’s a real page turner of a story about a boy who has been abandoned on a doorstep at birth and adopted. On the cusp of his 10th birthday, he is forced to face up to all kinds of issues and... More

“Unusual, exciting and compelling”

Read this in two short sittings (my 13 year old daughter read it in one). Its a fast paced adventure full of humour and pathos, fear and joy that just carries you along, a bit like Ches, wondering how (or if)... More
