hells yeah

Simon Mayo on ‘Blame’: “When things go bad, it always helps if we can pretend it’s someone else’s fault. This book is what happens when we run out of people to blame. It’s the story of 16-year-old Ant and her 11-year-old brother Mattie, locked up in Britain’s first family prison. Ant might not be everyone’s idea of a hero, but she’s all we’ve got.”

‘Blame’ is set to be released this summer.
