Hello Mum by Bernardine Evaristo
FROM THE BOOKER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF GIRL, WOMAN, OTHER
It's a hot summer afternoon. Tension is in the air. A gang of youths on bikes gathers outside a chip shop.
A teenage boy is stabbed and left bleeding on the street. The boy's mother wonders how this could have happened to her son. She is full of questions, but when the answers lie so close to home, are they really what she wants to hear?
