Alex Wheatle

Barrington Stoke

A sharp, witty and heartfelt tale of the ups and downs of teenage life from multi-award-winning Alex Wheatle.

Life on the Crongton estate can be rough for Briggy. Dad’s lost his job, Mum’s working so hard to make ends meet, and big brother Kingsley just wants out. With all of the shouting and arguing it’s difficult not to get lost in the mix. So when his best mate Terror and coolest chick in the year Caldonia, cook up a plan to make a quick buck, Briggy hopes this time it might be his chance to shine. Robbing the Post Office… what could go wrong?

A brilliantly real and funny novella of life on one of London’s toughest (fictional) estates.
