A boy (who sounds like a boy and not like a nostalgic adult trying to talk like a TV teen) approaches 13. He sees no reason to become someone else but his mate is trying too hard and his parents are desperately preparing to be 'parents of an impossible teenager'. Refreshingly different from "Wimpy Kid" and James Patterson's "Middle School", this is set in moderate old UK. It's short and quick and funny: a great read. Printed on cream paper [so the type doesn't glare] and set with wide margins in a well-spaced, typescript-like font, this edition is dyslexia-friendly.
Whatever your age, if you have been, are or might be a teenager, and especially if you can't really recall your teenage years, READ IT:-IT'S FUN.

A great little book from the publishers Barrington Stoke on their specially designed buff paper and print to help people with SLD and Irlens. Pete Johnson writes quick paced witty novels which often appeal to boys reluctant to read. Some Barrington Stokes appeal to younger readers (4U2read) but this is definitely for the older readers because of the content. It is not graphic, but it is about a young boy wandering what on earth is wrong with his friends when they start swapping War Hammer for girl friends. It is about relationships and feelings and growing up, whilst remaining very light hearted and tongue in cheek.

Barrington Stoke books are accessible to the dyslexic teenager and full of relevant titles which will interest them. This book I gave to my 12 year old dyslexic son who is a reluctant reader. He thought it was 'fab' and were there any more in the series ....

I was so chuffed that my 12 year old couldn't put this down. It dealt with puberty issues & young love. This household loves Pete Johnson.

Kid loved this book and is a fan of Pete Johnson (Check out 'Catch you on the Flipside' for older teens), only disappointing thing, it was so short!
