Summary
'A way of life' centres on teenage mother Leigh-Anne Williams; her brother Gavin, a seventeen year old desperately chasing love, and her two friends Robbie, a seventeen year old determined to move beyond his dead-end community and Steven, a fifteen year old yearning for a Welsh identity. All of them function along the margins of society ... until one day, paranoia, boredom, frustration and anger form a lethal combination. When her baby girl's future appears threatened, Leigh-Anne's Turkish Muslim neighbour becomes the target of pent-up anger and humiliation. A ferocious murder takes place which is seemingly driven by racial hatred and in a moment, the four teenagers seal their fate. -- Cover
