Title type

As I hobbled off into the darkness and out of sight of the police car, I asked myself for the millionth time – how did I get myself into such a mess?

It’s nearly midnight on Greg Jones’ eleventh birthday and he’s cold, wet, hungry and in trouble. Worse, he is trouble. It seems everything that’s gone wrong with his family lately – and there’s plenty – is all his fault. His mum is in hospital because of him. His dad is off in his truck in the back of beyond, and probably not coming home, because of him. In twelve years, Greg has made enough mistakes to fill a book. But maybe the book will still have room for a good chapter if he can track down that scumbag Bargain Bob and make him give back their money.
