Nailed – Patrick Jones – print book


What a great little story this was!

As a parent of two girls who have managed to traverse the teenage years relatively unscathed, I found this compulsive reading. And it should be compulsory reading for all parents – you can’t learn to drive without lessons and I really think we shouldn’t be allowed to reproduce without some lessons, too!

This book, written from the teenager’s viewpoint, is about disenfranchisement with everything – school, society, parents, you-name-it. And it is so logical, you just want to reach into the book, pull him out and hug him until he gets better.

Not written for adults, but teens, I still found it incredibly revealing and am eternally thankful that I didn’t cause my children as much pain as I could have done just by being me. Brilliant reading.
