A poignant and powerful sequel to Carnegie longlisted Brock.
Nicky and Kenny return in Pike as a fishing expedition nosedives into near tragedy. The Bacon Pond is famous for its monster-sized fish and Kenny is determined to catch one. And as usual, Nicky is dragged along for the ride. But when the boys glimpse what could be a body in the water - the body of a well-known local criminal who's just been announced missing - the secrets of the Bacon Pond might just take them all down. Sometimes it's better not to look too deep. A deeply poetic tale of choice, redemption and courage from award-winning Anthony McGowan. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
