You're waiting for the postman - he's bringing your A level results. University, a career as a journalist - a glittering future lies ahead. But when the doorbell rings it's your old girlfriend; and she's carrying a baby. Your baby. You're happy to look after it, just for an hour or two. But then she doesn't come back - and your future suddenly looks very different.

THE SADDEST BOOK EVER! Boys don’t cry is a heartfelt and gorgeous book that will leave tears of joy and sadness in your eyes. Follow Dante on his difficult journey as a single teen dad, learn to love beautiful baby Emma, and help Adam with his troubles about his true sexuality. I love this book, and would rate it a 12+ due to violence, sexual mentions and an subject suitable for older readers. All in all, an incredible read, LOVED IT!!! 🥰
