Told over the course of the ten rounds of his first fight, this is the
story of amateur boxer Sunny. A seventeen year old feeling isolated and
disconnected in the city he's just moved to, Sunny joins a boxing club to
learn to protect himself after a racist attack. He finds the community he's
been desperately seeking at the club, and a mentor in trainer Shobu, who
helps him find his place in the world. But racial tensions are rising in
the city, and when a Far Right march through Bristol turns violent, Sunny
is faced with losing his new best friend Keir to radicalisation. A
gripping, life-affirming YA novel about friendship, radicalisation and
finding where you belong.
