Why does he want to ruin a perfectly good friendship by becoming boyfriends? Why would someone from Paul’s background have any interest in ordinary boy-next-door Tom?

Tom is quiet and awkward, especially after his ex told him he was nothing. Besides, Tom’s too nerdy, too organised, too shy to ask anyone out ever again.

When Paul talks to him, Tom feels

So when I started this book I was a bit apprehensive as I still have little interest in reading about someone's drug experiences - I was pleasantly surprised, though. Yes, there is a lot of drug use, and yes, being high plays a big role, but I was
