A roller-coaster, first-person teenage thriller tells the third part of Keren David's story about teens caught up in the world of crime.

Having been expelled from the boarding school he hates, Archie is delighted to be back in London where he can hang out with a cool crowd. But, and more importantly for Archie, he can support his cousin Ty, who is up on a charge for carrying a knife. When Ty is sent to a Young Offenders institute Archie is drawn into trying to unravel Ty's complicated past while also keeping him out of trouble. Archie relates his story at a cracking pace convincingly capturing contemporary teen life.

Kicked out of yet another boarding school, Archie couldn't be happier to find himself back in London with old friends and an exciting social life.

But Archie is worried about his cousin Ty, who is facing a sentence in a Young Offender Institution and doesn't seem to be coping.

Archie is finding that his old friends have moved on and it's a struggle to keep up with their new lives. When he begins to learn surprising things about Ty, Archie goes on a mission to discover the truth about his cousin's past. But who is the real Ty? The thrilling follow-up to When I Was Joe and Almost True takes readers on a terrifying adventure through London's gangland.
