Jerry - By David Anglin (Ebook)
They say Britain is in a crime epidemic that hasn’t been seen for the last 10 years. Knife crimes up. Gun crimes up. Violent attacks are up.
But for those of us who have worked with young offenders and those in need. We’ve seen this a long time coming.
We’ve seen first hand the slow effects of 2010’s austerity measures. We’ve witnessed the rise in families who’s budgets have been stretched to breaking point, having to rely on food banks as there single source for food. Families that day to day living has vastly changed and with this change there children have changed. Becoming a little bit harder a little bit colder. Morals strewn so they become easily misguided.
Caught up into an impulse driven lifestyle that has promises of riches and comradely from other’s who look, act and are from the same environments as them.
These changes have been happening slowly year upon year with the effects only now being felt in the wider community.
My book Jerry is based on real life scenarios and gives a take on what its like as professionals working with young offenders involved in drug dealing, stabbings, shootings and acid attacks, and the issues that many of them have going on in the background. But which no one reports on.
My hopes are that from reading this story, it will help implement changes to bring opportunities for young people and break a destructive cycle.
For every book sold I'll be donating 20p to Frenford Youth Center as I've worked with them over many years and so know first hand the great work they carry out in the community.

For the past 9 years David Anglin has spent his time actively working with young offenders from some of the most troubled backgrounds. During this time he has gained much insight and experiences into the complex issues faced by those in the criminal justice system.
Academically he completed a degree in Psychology but his real experience and learning came from the university of Life and from the many characters he's met along this journey. Characters ranging from London's criminal underground to passionate business men and women who all have a burning ambition for a better life.
With these influences David, has been able to create vivid characters articulated into words that when read immediately shine through with authenticity and realism.
His greater hopes are that from his writing deeper conversations will be made that really delves deep into the difference between those who have and those who don't, and what can be done to bridge the gap between this ever-increasing divide.
