Set against a background of family strife, it is a gritty, compelling, often humorous account of a critical period in the boys lives as they encounter bullies, sexually savvy girls, a suicide, some vintage working class characters, and God. It is a story touched by both joy and sadness, and has an ending you will find hard to forget.
