I’m Bobbie. As in Bobbie Dazzler, my Nan says, although I don’t know who that is. And this is my brother Hench. He’s got a face for radio.
Hench is 16, Bobbie is 13. They live alone with their dog Taliban, playing Playstation, watching porn; surviving. Sometimes their chaotic mum Maggie visits, occasionally she passes out on the front lawn. But when Jenny knocks on the door the boys discover a world far beyond what they know, a world full of love, possibility and danger.
YEN explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own.
