Two boys, one struggle.

Tommy and Ryan are as different as they come. A young offender, Tommy is tough and cool. Ryan is a good student, well-behaved, and definitely not cool.

As Ryan helps Tommy crack the code of reading, a secret is revealed that will change their lives forever...

Packed with his hallmark heart and humour, prize-winning Malcolm Duffy explores the joys and challenges of dyslexia in his third novel. For 12+.
