'When burglars break into Jack's house, they take all his stuff.

'Now he's got no skateboard, no TV, no music, nothing. All his brothers do is fight, his mum thinks they all need counselling, his dad's trying to set an example, but hey, who's interested? Jack just wants to get out of that house.

'They're all pretty vicious.

'And suddenly, life is anything but boring.(Publication summary)
