A terrific read’ ***** Amazon reviewer Danny Byrne has grown up on a sprawling council estate in Pimlico.

Dodds is following his dad into the family butcher’s business, Crockett will sail on opportunity’s wings as it comes his way, and Nobby is flirting with drugs, and disaster. As the long summer unfolds, the boys focus on girls, trade banter and test their friendships to the limit.
