‘Move over Ferrante, there’s a new Elena in town’ Independent

The boy is almost eighteen and has a loving family. He’s polite and well-educated, quiet but always smiling.

When word spreads that he has broken into and stolen from a neighbour’s house, his parents and sisters can’t believe it. Then the unthinkable happens: an attack that will rip through the town and his family for years to come.

Just a Boy is a gripping, incisive novel about secrets, adolescence and how we can love someone – a child, a partner – without ever knowing their mind.
