Martyn Pig – Kevin Brooks

Martyn Pig is 15 and has a miserable life. One night his Dad gets drunk and then mean. Martyn tries to protect himself and his father ends up dead. It was an accident, but who’s going to believe him, so Martyn decides to keep quiet. With his father out of the way and with the help of his friend, Alex, Martyn hopes for a better life. A cleverly plotted story which is at times darkly funny, suspenseful, tender and with a surprise ending.
