Multi-award-winning author Brian Conaghan's first book for 10+ readers is a future classic brimming with humour and heartEven though I found him living in a house made of cardboard, Bruce is a massive legend.

FACT. So this mine and Bruce's story. You don't have to believe it happened, but it did. All of it. Nobody at school can see past Lenny's size to the person within.

So when lessons get too tough, Lenny always goes to his bench to think.

At least there no one can see him. Then one day, midway through lobbing his empty can of Irn-Bru into the canal he's stopped by Bruce.

Bruce lives in a cardboard home hidden away by the banks, and he doesn't approve of kids messing up his front lawn ... But a bumpy start soon gives way to an unexpected friendship - and an epic road trip - that will change both of them for life ...
