Billy’s life has derailed. Although he does well at school, he has no friends and is bullied by the school’s chief tormenter, Anthony. His mum, a nurse, is having financial difficulties and often comes home exhausted with a takeaway meal and little time for him. Billy finds comfort in his only friend, who is online, and doesn’t even know his real name. Oh, and the wheelchair doesn’t really help things either. All he wants is to be accepted and move on with life so he can be happy.
Making Tracks is a hopeful story of one boy’s struggle to belong in a world that’s trying to bring him down.
