Re-issued by Old Barn Books in 2017 to celebrate Glenda Millard's Carnegie Medal shortlisting, this title, originally published in the UK in 2011, deserves a wide audience. Skip's an outsider. He takes to the streets. Life there may be hard, but it's better than the one he's left behind, especially when he teams up with homeless veteran Billy. A moving tale of hope and survival. Suggested age range 11+.
