A young man lies bleeding in the street. It could be any street, in any city. But it's not. It's Glasgow. And it's May - the marching season. The Orange Walks have begun. Graham doesn't want to be involved. He just wants to play football with his new mate, Joe. But when he witnesses a shocking moment of violence, suddenly he and Joe are involved - with Catholics and Protestants, a young Muslim asylum-seeker and his girlfriend, and all the old rivalries - and fears...This is a gripping tale about two boys, who must find their own answers - and their own way forward - in a world divided by differences. A contemporary novel for young people looking at football allegiances, sectarianism and violence in Glasgow.
