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.

Excellent, heart warming read

I absolutely loved this book. It’s the tale of how 2 school acquaintances lives come together years later, both under less than ideal circumstances. Danny left school full of high aspirations but is now jobless and James, with the same aspirations had his world ripped apart by ‘the incident’. The 2 narrators of this story are perfect for the roles and make you want to listen to more to find out the past stories and how the 2 come together with their lives now intertwined. I wanted to listen to this book to find out what happened next each time I put it down. Great book, easy to listen to and well recommended.
