A coming-of-age novel of a young man whose life is a balancing act between his passion – rock climbing - and his domineering father’s ambitions for him. As he confronts his life head on, events spiral out of control and the issues he faces and the choices he must make have a life and death consequence about them. Wonderfully pacy, well-written this is a sensitive yet powerful novel.

Synopsis

Shooting The Moon by V M Jones

Pip McLeod's life is a balancing act between family, friends and his sporting passion, rock-climbing. When his father loses his job, and as his older brother's life goes into a dangerous downward spiral, Pip is forced to confront tough issues of loyalty and responsibility.
