Dedicated to all those boys who carried their scars into manhood, Boy on a Wire is about an underdog who bites back. Sent to boarding school at a young age, Jack Muir quickly has to decide who he is going to be. Will he roll over or bare his teeth at the bullies, the bullied and the boarding school system? Jack gets by with a quick wit and a macabre sense of humour – but not everyone is so lucky. Boy on a Wire depicts alienation and the beginnings of depression with poignancy and humour.

The first book in the trilogy “One Boy’s Journey to Man”.
