Product Information

For younger teens, or pre-teens, Wheatle’s third book for easy-reading publisher Barrington Stoke features Welton, the 12-year-old hero, as he somehow manages to score a date with gorgeous Carmella McKenzie. Everything goes downhill from there, as Welton pukes over a classmate, discovers his mum’s superannuated boyfriend is moving in, and manages to catch the eye of the scariest girl in school … Wheatle’s characteristic lively language, impassioned Star Wars references and colourful invented insults make for a brief but riotously relatable slapstick romp, ideal for reluctant readers.
