Excerpt: Nico sits in his bedroom gazing at the photo of his family: his mother and father, gaunt, stringy, parallel lines, stand behind their two skinny children. He runs a finger down the face of each one. Before school starts, he will have “accidentally” passed through the second door. It must look accidental. It must. His family don’t deserve Limbo.
