Right from the very first page I was gripped by this book. Blackman has written it from the points of view of Dante and Adam who are brothers. You experience every emotion and feeling, this is what makes Blackman such a good writer. The main focus of the book is on Dante who is made to deal with a baby aged 17. It takes a different route from the usual single mum scenario. Dante has to adjust his life and forget his plans for the future because he has no choice. This book really shows how Dante comes to terms with this idea and deals with it. The back story is about Adam, Dante's brother, who is battling against the prejudice against homosexuality. This book tackled the very extremes of what gay people are faced with when meeting homophobic people who are ignorant or scared of homosexuality.
