His new family send him to St Edwards, a prestigious boys school, with his new brother George. We follow his journey as he strives to fit into this new environment, as his classmates struggle to accept this new face and as he tries to find his identity. George is also desperate to make his mark. Dreaming of becoming a journalist he has to overcome the nepotism that effects even the school paper. As Kieran starts to believe he has found his place and dreams of making something of himself he leaves school and discovers it’s not as easy as he thinks.
