Kicked Out

by Richard W Hardwick
£7.99   paperback  Beautiful Books Limited (2009)

Kicked Out by Richard W Hardwick The essential novel about today's unwanted youth.
Sixteen-year-old Danny is kicked out by his parents and has nowhere to go but a shelter for homeless teenagers. There he finds a friend in the more experienced Goochy, who helps him find his feet. But the other residents are every bit as toubled and complex as Danny, and with drugs, alcohol, crime, sex and violence always on the cards, the house is soon simmering like a pressure cooker about to blow.
In this turbulent environment, between binges and wild escapades, Danny begins to reflect and grow. But a discovery about his family places him under a pressure he cannot contain...
Kicked Out draws on the author's experiences of working with young homeless and young offenders and is essential reading for anyone hoping to understand today's unwanted youth. Hard-hitting and unsentimental without being bleak, gripping and at times hilarious - you will never look at kids on the street in the same way again.
