Orangeboy : Shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and the Waterstones Children's Book Prize Paperback
SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD "What a book!
Such a gripping, gritty storyline, with such wonderful, believable characters.
Loved it." (Tanya Landman, author of Buffalo Soldier) Not cool enough, not clever enough, not street enough for anyone to notice me.
I was the kid people looked straight through. NOT ANY MORE. NOT SINCE MR ORANGE. Sixteen-year-old Marlon has made his mum a promise - he'll never follow his big brother, Andre, down the wrong path.
So far, it's been easy, but when a date ends in tragedy, Marlon finds himself hunted.
They're after the mysterious Mr Orange, and they're going to use Marlon to get to him.
Marlon's out of choices - can he become the person he never wanted to be, to protect everyone he loves?
