    'An instant Scottish classic' The Skinny

    Azzy Williams is ready. Ready to smoke, pop pills, drink wine and ready to fight. But most of all, he's ready to do anything for his friends, his gang, his young team.

    Round here, in the schemes of the forgotten industrial heartland of Scotland, your mates, your young team - they're everything.

    Azzy Williams is fourteen; a rising star, this is his life and he loves it.
    Azzy Williams is seventeen; he's out of control.
    Azzy Williams is twenty-one; he'd like to leave it all behind.
    But a way out isn't easy to find . . .

    Inspired by the experiences of its author, Graeme Armstrong, The Young Team is an energetic novel, full of the loyalty, laughs, mischief, boredom, violence and threat of life on these streets. It looks beyond the tabloid stereotypes to tell a powerful story about the realities of life for young people in Britain today.
