Naked, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


London, 1976: a summer of chaos, punk, love ...and the boy they called Billy the Kid. It was the summer of so many things. Heat and violence, love and hate, heaven and hell. It was the time I met William Bonney - the boy from Belfast known as Billy the Kid.

I've kept William's secrets for a long time, but now things have changed and I have to tell the truth.

But I can't begin until I've told you about Curtis Ray.

Hip, cool, rebellious Curtis Ray. Without Curtis, there wouldn't be a story to tell. It's the story of our band, of life and death ...and everything in between. This characteristically gripping novel from award-winning author Kevin Brooks will rock you to the core.

Review by

longlisted for the 2013 Carnegie Medal. Believable 'historical' fiction about the birth of a punk band in the '70s. Strong characters, as usual with Brooks, diametrically opposed m/f protags, including use of the Irish 'troubles' for lead male.Much enjoyed by my 14y-o+ readers, bringing more readers to the KB fan club!
