Davey's had to grow up fast in order to get away--away from his beautiful mother, who loves him, but doesn't know how to take care of him; away from his charismatic but reckless father, who loves him too, but can't commit to anyone, least of all his family; and away from the people who look at him strangely because he's not like them. The only constant in his life has been his sister, Joanne, who's fed him, protected him, and taken care of him ever since she was seven and he was two.
Now Jo, still a teenager, has a baby herself, and it's Davey's turn to take care of someone. Someday soon, he knows, he'll find his own somebody who'll love him, and he'll have his own babies and he'll love them like nobody ever loved babies before.
Gritty, gripping, unflinchingly honest, "Gypsy Davey" is the extraordinary story of a boy's ultimate triumph as he comes of age.
