An exciting new youth talent, 22-year-old writer and actress Abigail Tartellin has provided the score to the lives of dispossessed teenagers in contemporary Britain.
Set in one town in the north east of England, this debut novel from Abigail Tarttelin is a brilliant, unforgettable moment in the life of two teenagers: a sweet taste of young life, a love letter to hope. Marooned by a lack of education and a lack of generally anything else better to do, Flick muses on the artistry behind being a stoner, whether Pepsi is better than Coke and why the new girl in town is just so much hotter than all the familiar slappers and professional-abortionists he counts amongst his friends. As his relationship with Rainbow, the new girl in town, develops, Flick finds himself torn between the constraints and loyalty he feels to his old life and the pull of freedom that Rainbow represents.
