Bright, sporty and popular, Lorcan Lynch seems to have it all. But when his heroic dad is jailed, Lorcan is sent off to an eccentric aunt in the West of Ireland. Here the city boy faces thorny challenges - a new school and its spiteful bullies, and a girl called Blaise who's looking for someone to help save ill-treated animals on a neighbouring island. Plagues by asthma attacks and self-doubt, has No-Flinch Lynch the courage - or the lungs - to lead a perilous rescue mission?
"Gripping to the last page!"
