He knew from an early age that life was not supposed to be straightforward and easy. Not his life anyway. Living in a broken home where love simply didn't exist and with a mother who clearly didn't have him in her plans, a flicker of light at the end of the tunnel turns out to be just a flicker, as this boy's nightmare childhood is only just the beginning. He must find a way to come through everything that is thrown at him and still give himself a shot at any kind of normal life. This is the story of a young man battling his way through life in search of a feeling of belonging, amongst other things. With the help of friends, will he find his place? With the potential of happiness just around the corner, will the decisions he makes bring him the love he has always craved or the pain he has always expected?
