Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Always the Sun is a brilliant novel about parenthood
What do you do when your son is bullied? How far will you go to protect him from those who seek to cause him harm?
Jamie is thirteen years old, an only child. His mother has recently died. He and his father Sam have moved to Sam's home town. A fresh start. An aunt to lend support. A new job for Sam, a new school for Jamie. But one day Jamie comes home, bearing the scars of every parent's nightmare.
Something must be done... So it begins.
