Overview

Small Fish Big Fish by Jacob Carlisle

Life and love on the wrong side of the tracks.

Stephen is a seventeen-year-old on the brink of manhood with few friends and even less money. So, when he spots a banknote on the corner shop floor just begging to be taken, he grabs it while no one is looking and stuffs it into his pocket.

Stephen heads off to the fairground to have some fun, but unfortunately, he bumps into bad boy Archie Stewart and his gang of thugs who corner him and take the money.

Not long after, Archie approaches Stephen in the street and apologizes for his actions. The younger Stephen finds himself drawn into a web of lies, deceit and escalating crime from which he can't escape. Soon, his best friend, his family, and the girl he loves will all be in peril.

Small Fish Big Fish is a coming of age story about courage, first love and heartbreak set in urban Glasgow. It echoes the intensity and uncertainty of young adults struggling to find their place in the world. If you enjoy gripping psychological thrillers with plenty of suspense, compelling characters and a touch of secret romance, then you'll love Jacob Carlisle's authentic storytelling where the characters feel like real people and the scenery pops off the page.
