Great for age

Tom’s whole life is straight out of Crap Towns. Mum died. Dad’s a waster. School is tough. Tom and Raks are at the bottom of the pecking order - and it just shouldn’t be that way - but then they befriend ‘ASBO boy’, Ryan, and go to a Letchford Town football game with him. When it kicks off outside the ground with the Castleton fans, Tom and Raks are ready and up for it - it ain’t football - but Tom is hooked and can’t wait for the next home game! Suddenly everyone at school notices Tom and Raks: they have an identity, they have power — but at what cost? “…Ten times better than the usual teenage crap. It's about the lifestyle that wannabes like The Streets and Guy Ritchie can only dream about.” — Bali Rai
