Fifteen Days Without a Head

What can you do when you suddenly have to do without parents? Never give up and look out for help!

Since their grandma’s death Laurence and his brother Jay haven’t led a normal life. Small wonder, they have a depressed alcoholic mother. When she doesn’t return from work one evening, they tell nobody about it –  they are afraid of child services. To mislead their nosey next-door neighbour, Laurence even puts on his mum’s clothes.

Every evening Laurence goes to a telephone box to take part in the local radio contest pretending to be his dad. He hopes to win a luxury vacation, a vacation  for their family like the one they had had before his grandma died and when life had almost been normal! But when Laurence finds out where his mum really is and wants to retrieve her, the trouble really starts!

This book is suitable for readers between 12 and 16 years of age.

Dave Cousins completed his first novel in the back of a van, while touring with his band. His short story “The Floodlight Man” was broadcast on BBC Radio Five Live, and an extract from “15 Days Without a Head” was one of the winning stories featured in the SCBWI Undiscovered Voices Anthology in 2010. Originally from Birmingham, Dave now lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and family, in a house full of books and records, and writes in a corner of the attic with an anarchic ginger cat for Company.
