'A teenager doesn’t get it easy you know: a girlfriend after his body, a mate kicked out of home and a pup with a broken leg. No wonder Peregrine can’t find a minute to get his act together.
'But when his mother gets on with the local cop and then things go seriously wrong in the household, the lad realises he can’t just be a blob on the sofa. It’s another episode in the life of the only slightly crazy Merritts; an irresistible sequel to Voices in the Wash-House.'
