How to be a boy

Bradman, Tony

Teenage boys are trouble. It's in the news, on the front page - everywhere you look they're doing drugs, messing with knives, terrorizing communities. But what if it's become a self-fulfilling prophecy? What if you're 13, an OK kid in a bad life? What if you're more urban poet than ganster rapper?
