Stephen hasn't had it easy. He's now in foster care because his mom is crazy and his dad is an ex-con vagabond. He's always in trouble or on his way to trouble. But none of these problems compare to the problem of the Beast -- a fierce crocodile that Stephen's been taking care of for years. The Beast is Stephen's biggest secret -- and also his biggest challenge. And that's when it's in a cage. When the Beast escapes, the stakes get even higher.
With a keen eye and a startling voice, Ally Kennen joins the ranks of Kevin Brooks and Chris Wooding on the cutting edge of YA fiction.

A startling new voice in UK fiction comes to PUSH.

Praise

"This is a highly original, modern-Gothic plot, and British author Kennen executes it with moody panache...The stakes are high, the action is occasionally shocking, and the manifest drama is so gripping that it won't matter if readers don't catch the symbolic implications of the savage reptile." 10/01/2006
