Jarvis 24


David Metzenthen's writing just gets better and better.

Jarvis 24 is set in contemporary suburbia, unlike several of his earlier historical novels.

Life is seen through the eyes of Marc E. Jarvis.

Marc is a typical teenager. He regularly loses his belongings. He is fixated with girls.

And he has a week to come up with a place to do his work experience.

When he spots a fantastic looking female coming out of a used car dealership he knows where he'll be trying out for work experience!

Life opens up for Marc and his friends in unexpected ways.

They are on the cusp of adulthood, and new friendships are made and built upon.

A very enjoyable read, with moments of hilarity but also moments of thoughtfulness and insight.
