When Ty witnesses a stabbing, his own life is in danger from the criminals he's named, and he and his mum have to go into police protection.

Ty has a new name, a new look and a cool new image - life as Joe is good, especially when he gets talent spotted as a potential athletics star, special training from an attractive local celebrity and a lot of female attention.

But his mum can't cope with her new life, and the gangsters will stop at nothing to flush them from hiding.

Joe's cracking under extreme pressure, and then he meets a girl with dark secrets of her own.

This wonderfully gripping and intelligent novel depicts Ty/Joe's confused sense of identity in a moving and funny story that teenage boys and girls will identify with - a remarkable debut from a great new writing talent.
