Michael Byrne’s critically acclaimed young adult debut novel (Candlewick Press, 2016) has been published around the world in eleven languages.
“There’s no denying that Byrne can write hard-core action that keeps the pages turning; Boy and dog make a redoubtable, memorable team.”
- KIRKUS REVIEWS
“I loved this book. It is a real eye opener about how some young people have to live their lives. It has tremendous pace, a little humour and a lot of heart- wrenching sadness along with lively characters that are very real.”
- THE GUARDIAN
“Occasional kindnesses and acts of genuine compassion soften the impact of the neglect, cruelty, and betrayal Bully negotiates in this gut-wrenching, gripping debut.”
