The Blurb

A poignant, beautifully written novella about growing up and family. A companion piece to the hugely successful Brock and Pike, McGowan warms hearts once more with the adventures of Nicky and Kenny.

The Review

Rook is such a lovely story. It focuses on the relationship between two brothers and their dad. It is only a short read but is a coming-of-age drama. It is about growing up with a brother with special needs, without a mum, and about living in socio-economic hardship. It is a lovely story which is very uplifting.

Rook by Anthony McGowan is available now.
