The Killing of Butterfly Joe by Rhidian Brook
The Killing of Butterfly Joe is a dazzling and propulsive book from the bestselling author of The Aftermath. full of characters you'll never forget, this is a wildly original story about friendship, desire, and participating in the Great American Dream - 'the one that leads from rags to riches via pitches' - whatever the consequences.
Reader's Panel Review: Hilarious, fast-paced story about a Welsh student's gap year adventures in America. The family he teams up with are completely eccentric. You know it will all end in tears. Couldn't put it down. 10/10
