Published Jan 2010

Twelve year old Jez Walker lives in his own private world, trying to escape the real one that seems to hate or ignore him. For most of his life he has lived in The House – a home for stray kids run by the terrifying Big Mother and populated by bullies. Jez has learned to survive but it’s only when he makes friends with Mags, an independent-minded girl in his year, and starts a relationship with an imaginary dog, Star, that he learns there’s more to life than petty arson, twocking and thieving fireworks.
