Mog and his mates are bored.
Their school's a dump - the type of place kids get expelled to. Their lives seem pointless.
The most exciting thing they do is jump over the beck: the polluted stream at the back of the school. And it's there that two separate events occur which will change Mog's life forever...
Mog clings to the social fringe through association with Chris. But when Chris befriends loser Duffy and threatens Mog's status,
Mog takes drastic action. There will be consequences...
A tragic tale of betrayal, sparsely and finely told by a master of teen storytelling.
Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 14+
