Admittedly, I was predisposed to love this book because I adored his debut -and Booker award-winning- SHUGGIE BAIN. But Stuart's sophmore work exceeds itself. Five years in the making, this gripping, moving second novel by the Booker winner deftly balances the terror the reader feels for Mungo in his most vulnerable moments with his finding love and refuge with another boy from a different class and religion.
