Boy

by Lindsey Collen - £7.99  Bloomsbury (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747574675 | ISBN 10: 0747574677

Krish Burton is seventeen, and he's struggling with the memories of his beloved dead brother, the school exams that he is failing, and with his parents who never call him by his name, instead barking "Boy!" But when he is sent on his first trip alone across the lush Mauritian landscape to visit relatives, he starts to set his own rules. Through this touching, exuberant tale of courage, love and friendship, Lindsay Collen explores a young man's social and sexual awakening, and at the same time challenges the stifling of life through the misapplication of religious and social mores.
