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.
After managing to take care of his vicious crocodile, Beast, for years in secret, things go terribly wrong for Stephen when it accidentally escapes and wreaks havoc on the town--causing endless trouble for a boy who has worked so hard to avoid any added problems in his young life. Reprint.
