For age 13+:
When a school tragedy happens, you probably lay the blame on society, the Internet, TV or violent films. Not many of you think it could be the parents or the teachers fault, do you? But then, is it? We all have our say, spout off opinions in different directions according to our view of the world. In this novel, too, they all have their say, but whos right?
At only sixteen Clems world is turned upside down. His Willy-Loman-like father, a travelling salesman and a loser, is transferred from Eastbourne to Glasgow and along with him go Clem and his meek accommodating mother. But Glasgow is rough and Clems posh English accent is not well-accepted in the sink school he attends. And hes a brilliant scholar. He soon becomes the target for McEvoys group of thugs for whom slashing faces is the most important ambition in their depraved lives.
