Told over the course of the ten rounds of his first fight, this is the story of amateur boxer Sunny.
A seventeen year old feeling isolated and disconnected in the city he's just moved to, Sunny joins a boxing club to learn to protect himself after a racist attack.
He finds the community he's been desperately seeking at the club, and a mentor in trainer Shobu, who helps him find his place in the world.
But racial tensions are rising in the city, and when a Far Right march through Bristol turns violent, Sunny is faced with losing his new best friend Keir to radicalisation. A gripping, life-affirming YA novel about friendship, radicalisation and finding where you belong.
