Plot Summary
The humorous, harsh, and movingly human coming-of-age tale of two 12 year-old boys. Romeo Brass and Gavin "Knocks" Woolley, an unlikely pair of best friends: Romeo is husky and tough, while Knocks is an inquisitive kid with a bad back. Neighbors in a Midland housing estate, neither boy has an ideal home life: Romeo's father is angry and estranged, while Knocks can't communicate with his remote, couch-potato dad. The boys' shared sense of humor and high spirits bond and strengthen them.
