From the multi-award-winning author of Orangeboy comes a YA road-trip mystery.
After a fun Christmas Eve decorating the tree and singing along with his mum to Queen, 15-year-old Spey wakes up on Christmas morning to find the ex-prisoner father he has never met asleep on the sofa.
Then he receives a mysterious package in the post: a torn envelope filled with half a collage he made with his old friend, Dee, on her sixth birthday. Dee bounced between schools and pupil referral units until a tragedy meant she ended up in care outside of London, drawn into the world of county lines gangs. They haven't spoken for years, but Spey is sure she must be in danger. He just doesn't know where she is.
There's only one person Spey can think of who might be able to help....
On a road trip like no other, can Spey and his dad find Dee, and will they be ready to confront a criminal gang together?

YA fiction at its best
Patrice Lawrence just gets better and better at YA contemporary fiction. She also writes teenage boys as if she is one! Her perspective on life as a mixed race teen boy is an insight that becomes personal regardless of your gender or colour. The listener, via the incredible oration, is drawn to Spey, is rooting for Spey and becomes Spey as we follow his story and the decisions he has to make. Incredible. I really hope this book and others that Patrice writes, get the high profile and publicity they deserve.
