When Jason's teacher asks him to write a diary, Jason is sure that it is just a waste of time. However, he reluctantly begins writing about his life at Heronford School for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. He also describes his family life - and his worries about his mother, who has recently given up taking heroin, and her violent, drug-taking ex-boyfriend, who returns unexpectedly.
