Town by James Roy

In Town, Marty and his best friend, Reece, saunter into the school grounds on their first day of the new school year. Within minutes their cigarettes and lighter have been confiscated by one of the teachers. Undeterred, Marty spies an attractive female who is one of the new arrivals at the school. He confidently begins to talk with her, only realizing at school assembly that 'the new girl' is actually the new teacher.

This is the first of 13 interlinking short stories about a group of teenagers. The stories are shown from different perspectives, so you gain different insights as to the personalities of the teenagers, depending on who is telling the story!

Wonderful reading - some stories are hilarious , some sad, some have you on the edge of your seat with suspense, but all are engrossing and cleverly written.
