Product description

What’s it like to be a Traveller? Well – for Jim, it’s not much fun right now. His family have stopped near an Irish seaside town. Now he’s being sent to the local school, where he’s picked on by kids and teachers alike. It starts with words. ‘Tinker-stinker.’ ‘Dirty gyp.’ Before long, the punches start. The only friendly face is Kit, a settled girl who takes Jim under her wing and teaches him to read. But just as Jim feels that things are looking up, a shocking act of violence uproots him…

  • A stunning graphic novel by a phenomenal writer
  • Beautifully illustrated in colour by Emma Shoard
