Mo has to survive a difficult home, the dangerous South Crong streets – and when things get really bad, her own urge for revenge…
Brixton Bard Alex Wheatle, winner of the Guardian Children’s Prize, had a challenging childhood in the UK care system, and has gone on to become a celebrated writer, active in promoting diverse voices in literature. His Crongton series – Liccle Bit, Crongton Knights and the latest book Straight Outta Crongton – tells the story of teenagers growing up in a fictional tough London estate. Streetwise humour and tenderness shine through as the characters struggle to hold on to their dreams.
Alex will be in conversation with Robert Mitchell.
