Summary

Some people just look destined for great things. And sometimes, life has other ideas. 

Ever since The Incident, James DeWitt has stayed on the safe side. He likes to know what happens next. 

Danny Allen is not on the safe side. He is more past the point of no return. But it's funny the way life is sometimes. Just when you think you know how everything is, it surprises you. 

And redemption can come in the most unlikely forms.... 

Warm, witty and wise, Mike Gayle's new novel is a powerful story of male friendship and what we mean by success, reminding us of the simple courage at the heart of every human life.

Loved it. Another good read by Mike Gayle, having worked with and know people affected by ABI you’ve done a very good job well done and the narrators were fantastic too well done to you both. Def recommend.

Lovely story!

Really good audio book, sad, but lovely at the same time. I felt the epilogue was a little twee, but otherwise can’t fault it!

A fabulous story of male friendship

This book is such a refreshing change from the usual female friendship or romance stories. To have such an emotional and strong bond of care and friendship between two men is fabulous.
The two narrators are fabulous too and really bring the characters personalities to life. This book had me laughing, crying, on edge, worried, happy and more. The relationship between the two main characters is fabulous but also James family too. You can totally understand why his parents are so protective and also completely understand James reaction to them.
I can’t recommend this book highly enough. Give it a go, it’s fab!
