The stories of Nicky and Kenny from Brock to Rook, together for the first time in one stunning edition
Set against the stark but beautiful Yorkshire landscape, The Truth of Things is a gritty and authentic perspective on rural working-class life that encapsulates all the unique and unflinching power of family love. A deftly handled exploration of modern poverty, the highs and lows of adolescence, and life with learning difficulties, this is a book for every reader.
