In Roddy Doyle's Booker Prize-winning novel, an Irish lad named Paddy rampages through the streets of Barrytown with a pack of like-minded hooligans, playing cowboys and Indians, etching their names in wet concrete and setting fires. Paddy Clarke and his friends are not bad boys, they're just a little bit restless. They're always taking sides, bullying each other and secretly wishing they didn't have to. All they want is for something - anything - to happen. Set text for OCR and WJEC GCSE English Literature. THIS AUDIOBOOK CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND/OR ADULT THEMES.
