Burgess is BACK! This is a truly gripping and stirring novel which will certainly make you rethink the concept of the "ideal" family dynamic.

Set around a group of misfit kids, all with problems at home, school and each other, it brings the issues of bullying within both school and domestic environments vividly to life.

Kill All Enemies is an eye-opener as to what goes on behind closed doors; the characters are powerfully recognisable as real people, and it both made me laugh and cry in places. Burgess is the king of this genre, and although technically aimed at teenagers, you’d be hard pressed to find a reason not to read it and be utterly moved.
