Summary

He's her son, but he's no good. How far will she go for him?
Not all sons make their mothers proud....
June Dawson has come a long way from her rough East End background. She now lives in a nice little cul-de-sac in Rainham with her ultra-respectable husband and a lovely social life. But her world collapses when daughter Debbie announces that she is pregnant by her low-life drug addict boyfriend, Billy McDaid. June feels as though she is being sucked back into the world of villains and thugs she thought she had escaped forever.
But worse is yet to come. The baby - doted on by his violent and feckless dad - grows into the child from hell. He is mean, sadistic and out of control. Suddenly the family is not just in crisis. It is in meltdown.

Too much badness

For me, I just didn’t like the story line and vivid descriptions of the issues.
