Product description

Amazon Review

In Doing It Melvin Burgess has written what is potentially the most controversial young adult novel ever. It's an honest and funny book about three teenage British boys learning about themselves and life through their sexual experiences. But here's the catch: the story is told from the point of view of the hormone-sodden young males, naughty bits and all.

Gorgeous Dino thinks that equally gorgeous Allie should realise that they belong together and is puzzled and frustrated when their passionate lovemaking always ends with her refusing him. Jonathan fancies sensible, sexy Deborah but can't admit it to his friends, even after several steamy grope sessions, because she is…well…plump. And Ben is living every teenage boy's dream, an affair with a lusty teacher--but somehow it's getting to be too much of a good thing. Nearly all young adult novels about love and sexuality are told by and for girls: the perspective of this book will be educational for female readers. --Patty Campbell, Amazon.com

Review

"The current king of this genre" (The Times)

"Funny, honest and touching with engagingly mixed-up protagonists... realistic, but utterly uncynical" (Observer)

"A genuinely moral work of fiction about a subject - the confusions, joys and terrors of adolescent male sexuality - rarely addressed with any such comprehension or sympathy" (Evening Standard)

"Filth, which ever way you look at it" (Anne Fine)

"Refreshingly realistic and unsentimental approach to sex" (Time Out)
