What would you do if you saw someone getting beaten up?
Have-a-go hero Barney really should have used his patented superpower—his Very Loud Scream—and not chanced his wobbly, faux bravado. Now he’s dodging a posse of angry yobs, his head reeling from more than the missile that just hit him. Just who is this stranger sprinting at his side?
By the time it’s safe for him and Raf to emerge from their refuge, there’s a definite connection between them. And yet there’s something about Raf’s story that doesn’t quite add up. Will Barney's I-dared-to-believe dreams go up in smoke or is this New Year’s Eve the one Where Forever Started?
From the very beginning, I want to hug Barney. He seemed to be such a nice guy in a bad situation. The situation with his father made me want to hug him more. But, Barney’s reaction to the beating made me get emotional. His first inclination to help a homeless stranger when he had so little himself made that urge to hug come back again and again. By the end, I wanted to hug them both. What a good feeling book... Loved it!!
