Inhaltsangabe zu „A Kestrel for a Knave“ von Barry Hines

Billy Casper is a boy with nowhere to go and nothing to say; part of the limbo generation of school leavers too old for lessons and too young to know anything about the outside world. He hates and is hated. His family and friends are mean and tough and they're sure he's going to end up in big trouble.

    the billy elliot of scotland - without the happy ending. the boy lives together with his father and brother. no friends but a bird (kestrel) that he will raise. all he wishes for is a normal life, but reality is cruel. told from the boy's perspective it gives insight on the gruesome conditions of this rather loveless family life and his childhood in general, which maight not be as unique as it should be. a good read, a classic in schools.
