'8-year old Pepper proves a tenacious, resourceful hero in his own drama. Immensely readable and sweetly told' —Marti Leimbach, author of 'Daniel Isn't Talking'; ‘A charming and touching story’ —The Big Issue; ‘An engaging, highly readable and skilfully written novella. It generates a fine sense of shadowy jeopardy and builds to a satisfyingly tense climax. In Pepper it has a convincing young narrator who sees the world in his own very distinctive fashion' —Anthony Ferner, author of 'Inside the Bone Box'

I really enjoyed being brought in to the perspective of Pepper, seeing everything the way he would. I felt as if I went through the journey with Pepper wishing for him to get back to his routine life with his momma.
“A great read”
A wonderful read. I finished it in a few hours. I have autism and it was wonderful to read a book from the perspective of a neuro divergent character, I could really relate to pepper and couldn't put this book down.
