Living on the South Crongton council estate has its worries, sometimes major - and life for McKay has been even tougher since his mum died. His dad has been working all hours of the night and day to try and stop the bailiffs from breaking down their door. His brother, Nesta, is a...lways riding the streets at night, tempting trouble. And now, having strayed off his turf on a 'heroic' (if misguided) mission to help out a girl, McKay finds himself facing a friend's crazy ex-boyfriend, some power tripping hood-rats and a notoriously violent gangster with a vendetta that hits too close to home for comfort. How he got himself in this situation, poor McKay is not quite sure. He never asked for trouble ...But during one mad-cap night of adventure and danger, he will find out who his true friends are and what it means to stick with your family. Crongton Knights is a very funny, very moving story that shows that although life is testing, the lessons learned the hard way are the ones you'll never forget.
