Product description

In Boys Don't Cry, bestselling author Malorie Blackman explores the unchartered territory of teenage fatherhood. You're waiting for the postman - he's bringing your A level results. University, a career as a journalist - a glittering future lies ahead. But when the doorbell rings it's your old girlfriend; and she's carrying a baby. You're fine to look after it, for an hour or two, while she does some shopping. Then she doesn't come back and your future suddenly looks very different. Malorie's dramatic new novel will take you on a journey from tears to laughter and back again.

Review quote

"An extraordinary book, and truly is Malorie Blackman at her best" Guardian 20120425 "Blackman's emotional intelligence is such that Boys Don't Cry should be read aloud in every secondary school ... [She] is a bold, engaging storyteller whose intellectual daring and clear prose reaches kids that other authors don't. I vote she becomes the next Children's Laureate" -- Amanda Craig The Times 20101211 "Her writing at its best, creating characters and a story which, once read, will not easily go away" -- Nick Tucker Independent 20101116
