. Danny-Boy shaves his head for Grampa Dan's funeral and the barber tells him he looks like a prisoner of war. Danny-Boy doesn't care - he's on a downward spiral. Drinking, cutting school, obsessed with the sick, violent lyrics of Skarrs. Lyrics based on the real-life nightmare that broke Grampa Dan. When Danny finds out the truth about Grampa Dan he has one last chance to put things right. Catherine Forde - author of Sugarcoated, Fat Boy Swim and Firestarter has created a brilliant story of anguish and anger. A gripping, emotive and insightful book for young adults.

Books for Keeps said: 'A raw and perceptive story.' Sunday Telegraph said 'Delicious'. On Firestarter the Bookseller said: 'A gripping and edgy thriller that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.' On Fat Boy Swim, The Times said: 'Powerful, empowering ...crackles with teenage anger and pain.' The Sunday Telegraph said: 'should be force-fed to every secondary school child in the country'.
