New from the winner of the Guardian Children's Book Award, Home Girl is the story of Naomi, a teenage girl growing up fast in the care system.

It is a wholly modern story which sheds a much needed light on what can be an unsettling life - and the consequences that can follow when children are treated like pawns on a family chessboard.

It is award-winning author Alex Wheatle's most moving and personal novel to date. Meet Alex at the Library to discuss his writing and new novel.
