Summary
This is the gritty but inspiring true story of the award-winning author Alex Wheatle.

Alex had a tough start in life. He was abandoned by his family as a young child and grew up in a care home. After being expelled from school as a teenager, he was sent to live in a hostel in Brixton.

There, Alex found music and friends but he also got mixed up in drugs and violence. When he was sent to prison for taking part in the Brixton Uprising, Alex’s future seemed hopeless. But then something happened to change his life . . .

This book is particularly suitable for adults who are new to reading (emergent reads). It includes ‘What do you think?’ questions at the end of each chapter.
