If you haven't read it, it is your loss!
'Horrid High' is a juicy paper back that has been written with such prowess and expertise for it allows you to feast on a banquet of conceptual excellence that one can only savour delightfully and I assure you, you won't burp for you will still be craving for more, despite a good fill.

Payal has succeeded in effectively conveying the 'horrid' in order to bring out the innate evil that every human being sadistically possesses but often suppresses. By exaggerating it, she strikes a sympathetic chord amongst the readers as they not only partake in the journey with Ferg and the others but also reflect upon the attitudes of the grown ups. Although it is fictitious, one cannot ignore the underlying realities that float throughout the book. By presenting what 'should not' exist, she mocks at those who share these beliefs and attitudes and enjoy torturing children, yet drives the message to those who shudder at the thought of being monstrous companions to kids, that it's time to appreciate 'what is'.

The book is universal in its appeal for its high-octane language, scintillating characterisation and most importantly, an idiosyncratic theme which culminate into the vision called, 'Horrid High'.

This paperback is for all to read; young or old, male or female, parent or teenager, humane or inhumane!
