Description

For brothers Cole and Ruben it's another rainy morning in the badlands of East London, selling dodgy paperwork for even dodgier motors. But arriving in a grimy pub on their latest errand, the brothers stumble across a trio of gangsters, a beautiful young girl and a monkey in a cage - and their entire day is knocked off course. They soon find themselves fleeing in a hot-wired car, girl and chattering monkey in tow, surrounded by police. Their final destination: Oban, five hundred miles north, where they hope to find sanctuary. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+

Author description

Kevin Brooks had many interesting and unusual jobs - working in a zoo, a crematorium and a post office - before turning his hand to what he does best: writing hard-hitting and utterly compelling teen fiction. He has won awards for his brilliant novels, most notably the recent Carnegie winner, The Bunker Diary.
