Description

"Read this and feel young again." -Joe Siple, Bestselling author of The Five Wishes of Mr. Murray McBride

I'm seven years old and I've never had a best mate. Trouble is, no one gets my jokes. And Breaks-it isn't helping. Ha! You get it, don't you? Brexit means everyone's falling out and breaking up.

Huxley is growing up in the suburbs of London at a time of community tensions. To make matters worse, a gang of youths is targeting isolated residents. When Leonard, an elderly newcomer chats with Huxley, his parents are suspicious. But Huxley is lonely and thinks Leonard is too. Can they become friends?

Funny and compassionate, this contemporary novel for adults explores issues of belonging, friendship and what it means to trust.
