“Mickey Donnelly is one of the most engaging young characters I’ve ever read. McVeigh has captured the naivety and complexity of being a little boy in an untenable situation with great sensitivity and compassion. If you choose to invest in The Good Son, you can do so in the knowledge that you are in the hands of an accomplished storyteller. Prepare to laugh and cry as Mickey Donnelly takes hold of your heart and never lets it go until the last page. I loved this book and I didn’t want it to end.”
