"A riotous, real-feeling debut" - The
Guardian Poor Noah Grimes!
His father disappeared years ago, his mother's Beyonce tribute
act is an unacceptable embarrassment, and his beloved gran
is no longer herself. He only has one friend, Harry, and
school is... Well, it's pure hell. Why can't Noah be normal, like
everyone else at school? Maybe if he struck up a romantic relationship
with someone - maybe Sophie, who is perfect and lovely
- he'd be seen in a different light? But Noah's plans are derailed
when Harry kisses him at a party. That's when things
go from bad to utter chaos.
