Once I settled to the style, I found the characters authentic, in the main, and that the twists in the plot, while unexpected, were credible.
Wilson's descriptions of Lucas's big emotional moments rang true and occasionally took me back (way back) to similar moments in my own teen-age.
I recommend this book to anyone who has been a teenager!
Lukas has the hots for his English teacher and writes a great essay on that lunchtime sport knowing she will keep the sport a secret. She's impressed by it and wants him to enter a tabloid newspaper competition with that story. However two things make that not a great idea. One his fellow You Play, You Play school friends will no doubt be told to stop playing this great sport or even get in trouble. Two, that particular tabloid newspaper is the enemy of his father and one his father has imposed a media ban on. However his teacher's hotness wins in the end, and shortly after his story gets published. The prize also involves an internship with the paper for the winner and runners up. One of the runners up is Millie Overgaard, a female classmate from grade 13 who he also enjoys checking out and has a more realistic shot with than his teacher.
So begins an enjoyable for the reader look at life behind the scenes of entrapping celebrities and getting the goss readers want to know. Throw in a bad Tickle Me Elmo and a night out for Lukas' father that will make him the biggest story for years, and Lukas has one heck of traineeship and teenage life experience for you to enjoy!
Well done Tony, I'm looking forward to more.
