Perseus Publishing Bob and I met up and walked with trepidation to the pub. Bob had his spirit level over his shoulder. I had nothing on my shoulders, except the weight of the world. This is a story of an abandoned child's infant and teenage years. From adoption to sport, a close friendship with his teacher, teenage sex and being detained in custody. Emotions and morals run strong during this story of love, heartbreak, fatherhood and the complicated feelings for two sisters. It is a story of working class morals, written through the eyes of a young boy.
