Scéal tranglamach croíbhristeach an déagóra Eoin agus a thitim isteach in umar dorcha na handúile agus sa bhfodhomhan gránna dainséarach a ghabhann leis. Agus, chomh tábhachtach céanna le scéal Eoin féin, scéal na dtuismitheoirí: tá saol na máthar, Eithne, ina chíor thuathail. Í ar a dícheall glacadh leis go bhfuil a haonmhac faoi ghreim go daingean ag heroin. Ach is measa fós di é nuair a bhuailtear an dara ropadh uirthi - mídhílseacht a fir céile. Ní chuirtear fiacail san insint i gcás an scéil ríchumhachtaigh seo. É scríofa go fírinneach fíriciúil lom, ach ardscil agus íogaireacht ann go deireadh.

This highly acclaimed novel tells the horrific and gruelling tale of teenager Eoin’s slide into the world of drug addiction and his involvement with its murky and danger-filled underworld. Equally importantly, the parent’s story is also told, Eithne’s world is thrown into turmoil, first by the realisation that her seventeen-year-old son is in the throes of heroin addiction and then by the discovery of her husband’s infidelity. There are no ribbons wrapped around the story here – it is hard, factual and written with sensitivity and skill.
