Getting Up

Roket is sixteen bored, lonely, horny and pissed off.

His mother is hopeless and his dad is gone. Roket loves graffiti, his mum and McDonalds and when the girl with the ultramarine eyes gives him a free Big Mac, it must be love.

He joins a graff crew and drops out of school. But rivalries in his new world threaten to be fatal. By the end of the week Roket has been pushed to his limits.

One night it all goes horribly wrong and Roket suddenly finds his reputation and his freedom are on the line. Can he prove his innocence, as well as winning the graff battle and the girl?

Illustrated with original photographs taken on location.
