The powerful young adult novel about two boys forced to leave London after the second world war, and who take off on the run. Imagine you live in London immediately following the Second World War. Imagine you've been told to pack your bag, but not told where you're going. Or for how long. Imagine you are sent halfway across the world because someone thinks it will be better for you. This is what happened to Colin. This is his story. And Dougal's. Bernard Beckett's powerful novel Home Boys captures the world of two boys on the run. Two boys who need each other. Two boys in search of a place to belong. An exceptional story by an award-winning writer for young adults, as tender as it is brutal, as spirited as it is heartbreaking.
