In those cities, the much celebrated urban revitalization has come at a cost: it has displaced countless long-time residents—especially people of color and those of limited means—who can no longer afford their newly gentrified neighborhoods.Granted the dilemma of an asylum seeker from a ‘White List’ country, deemed to be safe but which isn’t, may need elucidating to a wider audience, yet while the novel is even-handed enough as between Protestant and Catholic viewpoints I struggled to see for what audience this could have been written, whom it was intended to educate. The incidental illustration of the usual parental restrictions on adolescent comings and goings do not expand the scope.

The two Glaswegians are united by a shared passion for playing football but divided by their family backgrounds and religious upbringing; one being a Protestant, Rangers supporter and the other a Catholic, Celtic fan. There, the nurse starts asking Graham questions and Graham is worried the police will find him while investigating the stabbing. The novel is written for teenagers and adults concerning the problems of sectarianism in Glasgow and racism against asylum seekers. Graham and Joe just want to play football and be selected for the new city team, but a violent attack on Kyoul, an asylum seeker, changes everything when they find themselves drawn into a secret pact to help the victim and his girlfriend Leanne.Now adapted for the stage by Martin Travers, the play has already been produced to great acclaim at Glasgow's Citizens Theatre.
