‘A-S-B-O. You think that makes you special. But it doesn’t. It means you were stupid enough to get caught, that’s all. I should have one. I should have the biggest ASBO there is. I want a poster with my face on.’
When sixteen year old JB is served with an ASBO he is sent to live with his uncle in a tiny caravan by the sea.
Each and every day he must paint one hut on the beach. It’s a chance for him to turn his life around, a chance to pay something back for all that happened in the city.
As the summer days drag by JB’s feelings of frustration and isolation grow. Only his tentative relationship with Sal offers up any chance of rescue. But a storm is coming that threatens to shatter his hopes and destroy the relationship that could redeem him.

I can never go back on what I’ve written. If it was not good, it was true; if it was not artistic, it was sincere; if it was in bad taste, it was on the side of life - Henry Miller
