Description - The Coconut Children by Vivian Pham
Growing up can feel like a death sentence
Life in a troubled neighbourhood demands too much too young. But Sonny wouldn't really know.
Watching the world from her bedroom window, she exists only in second-hand romance novels and falls for any fast-food employee who happens to spare her a glance.
Everything changes with the return of Vince, a boy who became a legend after he was hauled away in handcuffs at fourteen.
Sonny and Vince used to be childhood friends. But with all that happened in-between, childhood seems so long ago. It will take two years of juvie, an inebriated grandmother and a porn stash for them to meet again.
The Coconut Children is an urgent, moving and wise debut from a young and gifted storyteller.
