A fast-moving and gripping thriller with a powerful emotional engagement; this is a young boy's story of loss and unbearable hope as he survives on London's streets. Reminiscent of Slumdog Millionaire, this contemporary adventure story set on the streets of London follows a boy whose luck is about to change.

Since his mother's death, Bully has lost his old life.

Living rough with his dog, Jack, he can't imagine his future.

But one day, in the last birthday card she ever gave him, he finds a winning lottery ticket, a last gift from his mum that suddenly offers such hope.

If only he can get to his prize on time. Life is not that simple. Bully's struggle to survive has just got a whole lot harder.

They're after him on the streets, everyone wants a piece of him. And even if he does claim all that money, will he really be winning what he needs the most?
