|Loner in Space
This book was written originally for children, but the adults in Steve's test audience also enjoyed it.
The book tells the story of a boy who is a bit of a loner at school and in life. His home life is also a bit in tatters since his mum died. The book takes up the story when he discovers something in the woods, near where he lives, little does he know where his discovery will take him, but the title of the book gives you an idea, what will he find there? Will he still be alone?
