by Bernardine Evaristo
Jerome was only bad for twenty-five minutes in his whole life. He wants his Mum to understand why.
Why he had to ditch his best friend, fail at school, hang out with a new crew, and leave behind the baby sister he loved.
So Jerome sets out to show his Mum, how very different life looks through his eyes.
