It's the third of November, and it's Friday, and it's his twenty-first birthday. When Timothy walks to his usual street corner to see his favourite special bus, he meets Charlie. Charlie is a builder who is desperate for Timothy's help because Timothy is very tall, six feet six inches. Timothy has never had a job before - or no work that he's kept for more than a day. But when Timothy and Charlie have to collect money from a local thug, things don't exactly go according to plan... Over the course of one day, Timothy's life will change for ever.

A touching story of friendship and adventure, leading to drama and unexpected consequences!

A short novel depicting the adventures of new acquaintances Timothy and Charlie. Moderately pace keeping me engaged throughout, this is a novel with a little bit of heart. However, just as you get to know the characters, the story ends, one of the downfalls of a quick read.
