Strange Boy

Author: Paul Magrs Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/09/2003

David's an outsider. He's smart, sensitive - and convinced he has secret super-powers. Life for him and his brother is a constant whirl of would-be step-families and overbearing friends and relations. And even aged ten, he's finding he's not sure what he thinks about fancying girls when 14-year-old John down the road seems so much more interesting... Paul Magrs' warm, vividly told story of childhood's end blends comedy and drama in a wild play-ground of messed-up lives and family feuds.
