Synopsis

Set on one of Britain's tough and often brutal council estates, Gun Dog is a powerful story about the struggle to succeed in a place where the lawless operate without fear and the good are consistently failed by the agencies of law and order. Stevie Davies dreams of escaping from this misery by leaving to go to university. But all that changes when he is forced to hide an automatic pistol by a local teenage thug. Intoxicated by the apparent power the gun gives him in the local community, he is drawn down a perilous path, and his future hangs in the balance. Can the gun give him the freedom he's been dreaming of? Or will it throw away the key for good?



This fast-paced read is dynamic and gripping, perfect for teen readers who want all the characteristics of a long novel, dealing with teenage issues and tough topics, in a strong, condensed book. From a series written by some amazing authors, this book is everything a reluctant reader would want to get them engaged. Note: this book contains some strong language, graphic scenes and/or tough topics, so is only suitable for older YA readers.
