Stori drist ond eto'n obeithiol am daith emosiynol gythryblus llanc 14 oed sy'n araf ganiatáu i ofalwyr a chyfoedion ei helpu wrth iddo frwydro i reoli ei rwystredigaeth flin a'i ymddygiad treisgar ac anghymdeithasol yn dilyn marwolaeth ei fam; i ddarllenwyr 12-15 oed. Enillydd Gwobr Tir na n-Og 2002.

A sad yet uplifting tale of the turbulent emotional journey of a 14 year old youth who slowly allows carers and peers to help him as he struggles to control his dire frustration and violent and anti-social behaviour following his mother's death; for 12-15 year old readers. Tir na n-Og Award winner 2002.
Georgie is a teenager with serious problems: a deep-seated sense of self-hatred and an inability to trust anybody. He is in a school where his carers have done as much as they can with him, but have failed. Things look grim, until a move to another school in Wales provides a new set of carers, and perhaps even the prospect of new friends. Can Georgie trust these people to help him get over the terrible events of his past and start living life again?

Doyle has written a powerful and yet poignant story which makes it clear that people aren’t born with emotional problems, but develop them in response to what is going on around them and their ability to cope with these influences.

Using the narratives of both the victim, Georgie, and Shannon, a fellow resident at the school, to tell the story, the narrative changes as Georgie settles in: he analyses his own progress, and Shannon’s perception of Georgie’s development mirrors her own rehabilitation.

Georgie contains some very moving and disturbing scenes, which do not romanticise emotional problems, making it unsuitable for the younger teens. However, it is an absorbing read, which grips the reader. You learn from it, will cry with it, and will be glad that you read it. Promise.
