Overview

Will must run, or die. He's seen a murder, and the gang on his estate are after him.

Hurt, hungry and afraid, he comes to an abandoned house in a different part of the city. Behind its high fences is a place of safety. Here, he can hide like a wounded beast. He can find food, and healing - and learn how to do more than survive.

But when Will meets Padma, he must choose between his good side and his bad one. For the gang he left behind is still there. How can he live without becoming a killer? How can he love without being a thief?

Reviews

Amanda Craig is such a clever writer. In THE OTHER SIDE OF YOU (Abacus), she updates Beauty And The Beast into a violent, urban story of young Will escaping the gang culture of his South London estate and taking refuge in an abandoned greenhouse, from where he secretly watches Padma, a beautiful young girl.

Can he reject his past and let the plants restore his soul and nurture the good inside him?
