Quick witted, sharp-tongued Connor Lambert won’t take it any longer: the bullying, the secrets, the sympathy. He’s been dying for years, but he’s not dead yet. He’s going down fighting.
Forming an unlikely friendship with fellow juvenile delinquent Skeates, the pair stage a break out and set off on a crazy route across Scotland to find Connor’s dad, an inmate at Shotts prison. But Connor’s left two things behind – the medication he needs to keep him alive, and the girl who makes living bearable.
Dodging the police, joy riding and extreme partying – if Connor’s dying, he might as well enjoy one last wild adventure.
