A surprising page turner as we follow the main charachter Merton Browne and his attempts to escape from a life of crime, gangs and inner city poverty.

As he gets older things don't change much. He thinks secondary school will be about learning, but mainly it's about staying out of trouble. Disenchanted and desperate to avoid the attentions of Savage and his posse, Merton finds refuge among the forgotten history books in a dusty basement, remnants of another regime.

His inner struggle to abandon his self-destructive path and become responsible for his own life makes for a gripping read.

Life for teenager Merton Browne is unremittingly grim in this uncompromising rites of passage novel. Hiding from the rest of his life in a store cupboard full of long-forgotten history books, Merton escapes into a world of ideas. At home on their sordid sink estate, he overhears his mother’s dealer boyfriend beat seven bells out of her. At school, he’s bullied mercilessly because he’s clever. Things change when Savage, the ringleader of the posse that made his life a misery, realises Merton’s sharp brain can be used to help realise the gang’s criminal ambitions.
