FAG is the story of life in an 1930s English boys boarding school. It is an unsettling read of bullying, intolerance and non-acceptance.
I sort of knew what was going to happen and it wasn't pleasant reading. This was a very well written book. The pain of the characters came through and it was heartbreaking at times. In writing this review, all I can think of are clichés, but that's because they are true.
In saying that this is a harrowing story, it is a page turner. As things spiral downwards, I needed to know what was going to happen next, with the hope that things would turn out OK.
This author is known for his light-hearted Maureen series of books and this one is a lifetime away from them. I will be thinking of this book for some time.
