Description
'Last Friday, September 6th, I collided with adulthood. I lost my innocence - but not like the soppy love songs say. It was more like a slap across the face with a wet hand. I can still feel the sting.' On Damon Styles' eighteenth birthday, he is expelled from school. His stories have won prizes yet they're full of gore and death. He breaks school property, has threatened a teacher and the Principal wants him off the campus. But it's that morning when Damon leaves Strathven High School that everything changes... Now Damon must come up with a plan. It's the only way he can think straight about what's happened. First, get his firearms licence. See if the Pigman will give him a job - pig hunting with Miro will teach Damon what he needs to know. And get a lock for the cupboard so his mother won't find what he's hiding in there. J.C. Burke is back - and back to the style of book for which she won the CBCA Award for THE STORY OF TOM BRENNAN: a confronting, powerful story for older young adults, from the first-person perspective of a boy who's decided to take things into his own hands - but the problem is, so has the town of Strathven.
