H, Casey and baby Severino have been split up after their mother’s death. Casey is in care; Severino has been fostered with a view to adoption, and no one really cares what H does; even his mum thought he was a waste of space.
But Casey is determined to keep the family together – running away from care, Casey snatches Severino from the baby’s foster parents, steals H’s stash of money and posts the cash to a PO Box in Inverness in the north of Scotland. His goal is to find his estranged dad, who moved back to Inverness years ago, a long way from London. To ensure his older brother’s help on the journey, Casey makes sure H will need to sign for the money – if H wants it back, he’ll have to join them on their road trip north.
It is the start of a life-changing journey, in which the brothers meet other teenagers whose lives are similarly touched by hurt, but who also have the potential for change.
