Summary

It's been eighteen years since Josh Peters left dreary, dying Derton - the seaside town where he grew up - and headed for the bright lights of London. Now his dad is sick and his mum needs him, so he's back - though he's promised himself he won't be staying for long....
Then Josh finds himself unexpectedly detained in Derton, living in his cramped teenage bedroom, with simmering family tensions a little too close for comfort. Back amongst the old friends, old enemies, and old flames he left behind, he's worried that some things may never change.
But is Derton the same place he couldn't wait to escape from back then, full of failures and bitter memories, or has it been doing just fine without him? As Josh revisits his past, will he find that the only one who hasn't moved on is him?
His London life is calling him back - but sometimes there's no place like home....

Loved it

I really enjoyed this book, it's not what I would usually choose but after reading other's reviews I decided to give it a go.
It is a poinient story, but with humour (I found myself laughing out loud on a number of occasions) and a deeper message about what home really is.
I would definitely recommend this to others.

Hits the heart mark

Funny and ultimately an endearing read. Not a tear jerker but definitely had me reflecting on friendships and relationships.

Absolutely loved this book!

Maybe because of my own recent family situation of loss and trials I felt connected to this book but regardless it was well written and touched my heart. It also helps that I'm a suckered for an English accent and all the lingo that goes with. Thank you Matt for writing this book.
