Mark Small: This Is Your Life (Paperback)
Fourteen-year-old Mark Small has no idea who he is. Anxious for connection and friendship, he embarks on a series of illegal break-ins to punish his father's nonpaying customers. But mostly he likes to poke around in other people's lives, a habit borne of his lonely childhood in an English seaside bed and breakfast. This debut novel is a poignant and funny coming-of-age story about identity--in all its guises--tracing Mark Small's adventures as he learns hard truths about family, friendship, and forgiveness.
