Josh is an average football-playing 15-year-old with plenty of friends until his father is killed in a terrorist bombing on the underground.
Struggling to cope with grief, Josh withdraws into his shell, but finds himself targeted by a white supremacist group as a potential recruit.
Will he be drawn in or will he find the strength to resist, and, with the help of unlikely accomplice, plant something good in the space grief has left inside him?
A Note From the Publisher
‘Luke Palmer is a hugely talented new writer, who has given us an unflinching and sadly unavoidable story of insidious white teenage radicalisation in small town England. Grow is also a moving evocation of grief, shot through with redemption.’
