The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. Powerful novel by an award-winning author, charting a boy’s harrowing schooldays in a sink estate in Liverpool. Two's company and three's a crowd, one has got to go. This is a terrifically taut and short novel and perfect for reluctant and struggling readers as it has a reading age of around 8 but an interest age appropriate for teens.

A Dyslexia Friendly title.

Mog and his mates are bored. Their school's a dump - the type of place kids get expelled to. Their lives seem pointless. The most exciting thing they do is jump over the beck: the polluted stream at the back of the school. And it's there that two separate events occur which will change Mog's life forever...
