Short summary:

Bobby Seed: your average sixteen-year-old boy who worries about relationships, school and his future profession.

Bobby Seed: the same Bobby who has to wipe his mum’s backside, sponge her clean three times a week, soothe her pain; the same Bobby who worries about whether his little brother has a clean school uniform to wear.

How will Bobby survive between these two parallel lives?


A rollercoaster of a book: this is a profound book that every individual needs to read seeing as it provides a rare insight to human emotion. I strongly recommend this book.
