Fallout Synopsis

Is Marcus's fate decided by his family? Or can he stand up for himself to become the person he really wants to be? A totally gripping read for readers of 10 and over, from the winner of the Wales Children's Book of the Year Award 2023.

Marcus has one brother in a youth offender centre and the other is working with their dad on plans for their next theft. Everyone assumes Marcus will follow in their footsteps, but he has other ideas, different hopes.

When a mysterious accident lands a man in hospital, it confirms what everyone in their community expects and Marcus gets the blame. He feels trapped. Only new girl Emma - with her peace protest banners and political badges - questions this story. Can they work together to clear his name – and help Marcus become the person he really wants to be?

An exciting and moving story about questioning your loyalties, from the acclaimed author of The Valley of Lost Secrets. Perfect for readers of 10+ who love Phil Earle, Frank Cottrell-Boyce or Brian Conaghan.

Really lovely book for anyone to read

I loved this book, I really liked the pictures on the new chapter pages, the story is really good and I liked it a lot because it shows that you can be your own person and be someone different, it showed a great friendship.

Jacob Revill

Can Marcus really make a better life than the one he’s is destined for? Can he stop himself going down the same route as his family? A well written, gripping book that will have you really feeling for Marcus, the main character.

A really good and gripping read that is always keeping you guessing.
Being brought up in a bad area and not from the best of families Marcus is thought to be a bad lad. He has a brother already in Bristol and it looks like he is heading the same way. But when a couple of people have belief in him he is left realising that doing good can be worthwhile.
Although there are challenges can Marcus really change his destiny and make something of his life?
Well written, easy to follow and really makes you feel for and engage with the main character. It shows us all not to judge without really trying to understand someone.... Read Full Review
