Build a Rocket

Build a Rocket

by Christopher York

"This isn't the story of Icarus and Daedalus.

It's Yasmin and Jack.

And we won't fly too close to the sun.

We'll fly through the f***er."

Yasmin is young and feisty and lives on the edge. A young mum, her Scarborough isn't sandcastles, arcades and donkey rides. She's been dealt a rough hand and has to decide whether to give in or get smart.

But can the thing which threatens to ruin her life be the one thing which saves her? Can she still be the architect of her own destiny?

An explosive and passionate portrait of a young heroine of our times.
