Reading Ahead

Kerb-Stain Boys: The Crongton Broadway Robbery

Alex Wheatle, Ali Ardington

A brilliantly real and funny novella of life on one of London’s toughest (fictional) estates.

Life on the Crongton estate can be rough for Briggy. Dad’s lost his job, Mum’s always working to make ends meet and big brother Kingsley just wants out.

Then Briggy’s best mate Terror cooks up a plan to impress the coolest chick in the year, Caldonia Lake. Briggy doesn’t want to lose face by chickening out and, who knows, maybe they’ll make a quick buck.

So what is Terror’s master plan? Robbing the post office … What could possibly go wrong?
