Two teenage boys, friends since childhood, are trapped in the tangled web of their disadvantaged circumstances, and long for release. Enter Vin, a little older, street smart and oozing charisma. Forcing a wedge between the two friends, he turns their lives upside down. But in the process, he helps them to learn and grow.

"House peels away the facade to expose the vulnerability of his characters as they struggle to assert meaning in their lives. His language rings with the rough ad brutal rhetoric of his characters - crude and defiant, gentle and achingly real." - Peter Wilkins, Canberra Times, 20 June 20 2005

"An uncompromising insightful journey... The dialogue is sharp, streetwise and tinged with poetry." - The Sunday Mail

"Vin contains some of House's most charged and elegant writing." - The Advertiser

"House's frank look at two impressionable teens with messed up home lives who fall under the spell of a charismatic drug dealer is quite compelling, and House has a keen ear for authentic language." - The Daily Page, USA
