Nick Hornby

SlamSuitable for 13-14+ Mature content

16-year-old Sam's life is looking more hopeful; first serious girlfriend, plans for college and celebrating his freedom from mum's latest 'rubbish boyfriend'. When his girlfriend announces she's expecting his baby, he takes a slam worse than any hard fall he's had while skateboarding. Sam turns to his skater hero Tony Hawk for advice and through their imagined conversations and bizarre glimpses into the future, Sam starts to grow up. Sam is a typical, straight-talking, very funny teenager who you want to see make a go of his life. This being Nick Hornby, there's a clever musical soundtrack playing along in the background, linking the characters and events together, adding another layer to the narrative as Sam starts to shoulder his responsibilities. Riveting stuff that both girls and boys will enjoy.
