About the Book

Stevie McBride has just turned seventeen.

Already, he’s struggling to understand what his life is about, how he fits in, and where his future might lie. He hopes one day to meet someone to share his secret hopes, feelings, and doubts with.  But Stevie is inexorably shy, and the girls in this neighborhood just aren’t his type.

Stevie lives in a part of town where graffiti is daubed on walls, not as folk-art, but rather an expression of anger by those unlucky enough to live there. Until now though, he’s managed to fly under the radar of the local gangs.

But then Stevie spots some money lying on the floor of the grocers. He decides to keep it and heads to the fairground to have some fun. What happens next sends the teenager’s normally well-ordered life spinning out of control. He finds himself on a pathway of escalating crime, driven by his own naivete and fear of next-door neighbor, Archie.

And somewhere along this road, he meets Julie…

Small Fish Big Fish is a powerful coming of age novel, a psychological thriller about teen violence and bullying, and a moving story of family and young romance.
