New Boy, Paperback / softback Book

Description

`A compact and intense read full of twists, turns and intrigue' Daily ExpressThe bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring and The Last Runaway returns with a tale of jealousy, bullying and revenge. Arriving at his fourth school in six years, diplomat's son Osei knows he needs an ally if he is to survive his first day - so he's lucky to hit it off with Dee, the most popular girl in school.

But one student can't stand to witness this budding relationship: Ian decides to destroy the friendship between the black boy and the golden girl.

By the end of the day, the school and its key players - teachers and pupils alike - will never be the same again. The tragedy of Othello is transposed to a 1970s suburban Washington schoolyard in Tracy Chevalier's powerful drama of friends torn apart.
