A collected edition of the stunning and moving stories from The Truth of Things series by award-winning author, Anthony McGowan.

The Truth of Things: Life is pretty tough for Nicky and Kenny. Their mum is gone and their dad has had his troubles. Money is tight and people can be cruel about Kenny's learning difficulties. But through it all, the brothers stick together, sharing adventures and their love of the natural world, while finding humour in the most difficult of circumstances. Lark: Things are tense at home for Nicky and Kenny. Their mum's coming to visit and it will be the first time they've seen her in years. When they head for a trek across the moors to take their minds off everything, a series of unforeseen circumstances leaves the brothers in a vulnerable and very dangerous position. There might even be a chance that this time not everyone will make it home alive ...
