An interesting book, but not a nice one. If you've ever wanted to know what goes on inside a modern teenager's head, this is the book for you. It exposes the heady mixture of narcissism and hedonism that is present in modern lives. The main characters are depicted as characters caught up in swirls of desire where schools and parents are present but distant with very little impact. It's well written, switching between the two main characters, and explores the changes in modern gender roles. In this setting in Middlesboro lives seem nasty, brutish and short.
