Kev's a loner, a hard case. When his mum and dad split up, he goes off the rails. He's looking for trouble - but he never means it to go that far . . . the fire, the shed, that old man.
After the fire Kev is moved to a new school to build a new life, but his terrible secret is found out. The only way Kev knows how to deal with it is through another fire. But this time perhaps it's Kev's life that will go up in flames.

Alan Gibbons writes with compassion and intuitive understanding about one boy's battle to survive against the odds.
