Lookingforabookname | 4 comments Published before 2008. Revolves around 3 male High school students in English/British Country. One dates a slightly overweight girl, one dates a teacher who is very forward and forces him to do things he isn't comfortable with and when he tries to break it off she slits her wrist and gets hospitalized. I don't remember about the third guy.

The title of the book is also a British slang term, I think for something like homeless or directionless young people.
