Many things happen in the underworld, without us knowing about them. This is the case of what is known as “county lines”, the practice of using children to pass drugs from cities to rural and coastal areas. A good picture of today’s England that Blake condemns through this powerful debut, a fiction based on real events. Tyler, a teenager who lives with his mother and sister in a humble apartment, loses interest in high school as he becomes entangled in the murky business of a local criminal. A difficult circle to leave in a hostile environment, and with the only hope of a mother that could bear the guts to do so.
