Four schoolchildren decide to run away from the the horrors of their
everyday lives in a children's home. They seek asylum in the woods. And
it is there they enjoy the exhilaration of freedom and the first flush
of adolescence. Yet the forest slowly asserts its own power and what
happens out in the wild will affect the four boys' lives forever.

With his compelling narrative directness, rhythmic prose, and
trademark humour, Alex Wheatle shows himself to be an author of real
calibre, exposing the social stigma associated with children's homes,
and the horrifying psychological consequences of their impact on
children at the most sensitive stage. Never losing pace or failing to
engage the reader at every moment, Home Boys is an unflinchingly honest
depiction of disrupted childhoods.
