Guardian Review

Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman

It's a striking opening: Dante is waiting for his A-level results to arrive in the post, but what he gets instead is an ex-girlfriend on the doorstop with a baby she says is his. One event offers him a future at university; the other, since the mother is about to dump the baby on him, leads to the death of all his dreams...
Blackman is a clever sleight-of-hand artist. It's only after you've finished reading that some doubts creep in... MARY HOFFMAN
