Grow Up Paperback / softback
by Ben Brooks
Who says youth is wasted on the young?Jasper wants to get on in the world, but he's got a lot on his plate: A-levels, his mother pushing him to overachieve, weekly visits to his psychologist, come-downs, YouTube suicides and pregnant one-night-stands.
Then there's his stepdad - the murderer. Hilarious and heartbreaking by turns, Grow Up is the ultimate twenty-first-century coming-of-age novel.
It paints a vivid portrait of the pills and thrills and bellyaches of growing up today.
Funny, smart and twisted, it is the story of one young man transformed.
