Helen's in mourning because Liam has killed himself - she felt she really knew him. Gary is in trouble with the law after that episode with the car. Catherine and Gavin were due some fun in the graveyard before a hair-raising interruption. Tracey wants to play football. And Matthew, well he's on another planet. Wanting to Belong is about life, love or the lack of it among the teenagers of Cwmtaff. From eco-terrorism at Rudge's noxious landfill site to betrayal in the 32B gang, the world is a strange place and it's up to them to find their way in it.

A humorous and impassioned reader of his work, Mike Jenkins has performed at numerous and diverse venues, read on radio and TV, and is a previous winner of the John Tripp Award for Spoken Poetry. He is a former editor of Poetry Wales, and a founder of the Red Poets Society, which organises regular performances and publishes an annual magazine of radical poetry. Wanting to Belong, his collection of interlinked short stories about teenagers in a south Wales valley, was Arts Council of Wales Book of the Year 1998, and has been filmed by the BBC.
