Written with humour and heart, Sofa Surfer looks at what it means to be homeless. Malcolm Duffy's debut novel Me Mam. Me Dad. Me., about domestic violence, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Prize 2019, longlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2019 and selected for Wor...ld Book Night. 'What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.' 15-year-old Tyler's teenage angst turns into outright rebellion when his family leave London for a new life in Yorkshire. Angry with his parents about the upheaval and with only the dog to confide in, Tyler has no idea that a chance meeting with a skinny girl called Spider will lead him into a world he never even knew existed. Spider is living on the streets and Tyler finds himself spinning a tangled web of lies in his efforts to help her escape from this dark and dangerous place. Inspired by his research with children's homelessness charity, X, Sofa Surfer shows how empathy and action can help vulnerable young people sleeping rough. As with his widely praised debut Me Mam. Me Dad. Me., Malcolm Duffy finds humour and heart in the darkest situation. Timely, shocking, warm and funny - Sofa Surfer is about what happens when going home isn't an option.
