Ostrich Boys

A wonderful rites-of-passage story from critically acclaimed author, Keith Gray. <br /> 'It's not really kidnapping, is it? He'd have to be alive for it to be proper kidnapping.' Kenny, Sim and Blake are about to embark on a remarkable journey of friendship. Stealing the urn containing the ashes of their best friend Ross, they set out from Cleethorpes on the east coast to travel the 261 miles to the tiny hamlet of Ross in Dumfries and Galloway. After a depressing and dispriting funeral they feel taking Ross to Ross will be a fitting memorial for a 15 year-old boy who changed all their lives through his friendship. Little do they realise just how much Ross can still affect life for them even though he's now dead. This is Keith Gray's first new novel in three years and is a wonderful rites-of-passage story combing elements from &quot;Stand By Me&quot;, &quot;An Inspector Calls&quot; and &quot;Grand Theft Parsons&quot;.
