Why did I love this book?
This is a gritty, fast-paced story about Joey, a young man who is down on his luck but trying to support his family after the death of his father. He makes one bad decision which sets off a twisting chain of events that have a devastating impact on many people’s lives. The Phone Call is a beautifully written book, with well-fleshed-out characters set in an ordinary town that could be anywhere in Britain today. This book lived on in my head for a long time after I finished reading it.
