Matt Okine’s novel Being Black ‘n Chicken, & Chips isn’t an autobiography... but it is based in Matt’s own life experience. The book is about Mike Amon, a regular teenager. All he wants is to fit in. He also wants his mum to survive. When his mum is diagnosed with advanced cancer, Mike figures if he gets his own life right and makes his mum proud, maybe it'll be enough to help her get better.
