Candy

Author(s): Kevin Brooks

Children's Books

Joe is hooked from the moment he sees Candy. What is it that catches his eye? Is it her hair, her smile, or just the way that sheâÃÂÃÂs standingW When they chat over coffee, thereâÃÂÃÂs an instant attraction, but can love really be this sweet>

Joe takes Candy deep into his soul. He thinks about her night and day, and even his music throbs to the sound of her name. But Candy also takes him somewhere else âÃÂàto her world: a bitter place of drugs, violence and hopelessness.

As the dark truth emerges, Joe must decide if love and hope âÃÂàand Candy âÃÂàare worth fighting for. And he must find a way to escape the danger that loiters on every street corner.
