The Boy With The Thorn In His Side

By Chantelle Atkins

Thriller, Young adult | Paperback, eBook

"I don’t have my headphones on yet, but the music is always in there. I have a constant walking soundtrack to my life, you see. There is a song for everything." In the decade of grunge and Britpop, thirteen year-old Danny is a music fan in the making. He is also on a mission to deter unsuitable men from his beautiful single mother. With his best friends behind him, a soundtrack in his head and first love on the horizon, things are looking good until local nightclub owner, Lee Howard, comes on the scene and sweeps Danny’s mother off her feet. What do you do when your mother is dating a real-life monster and no one can see it but you? A dark and powerful drama about friendship, music and the choice between escaping and fighting back.

Chantelle Atkins was born and raised in Dorset, England, and still resides there now with her husband, four children and various animals. She is addicted to both music and reading, and is on a mission to become as self-sufficient as possible. Her writing is described as gritty and compelling and she writes in both the adult and young adult genres.
