A Young Adult book left behind by one of my students. Same author as the book Smack. A bit juvenile, but interesting for its commentary of British teen (primarily male) sexuality.

I thought this book was hilarious. I laughed out loud many times while reading it. It's written using lots of British slang, which is partly what makes it so funny. Sometimes it takes a second or two to realize what body parts or activities the characters are referring to, but once you figure it out, it's so funny to think about how a different culture in a different country refers to things. It's definitely a story for teenagers/young adults, but well-written and very entertaining nonetheless!
