Praise for My Side of the Story:
‘Will Davis is a witty writer who effortlessly conjures up the frenetic detail of Jaz’s sixteen-year-old world’ Independant on Sunday
‘The dialogue fizzes with savvy one-liners... Davis’ observations of the dysfunctions of family and school are as sharp as his prose is fresh, and his debut is intriguing, touching and entertaining’ Time Out
‘Davis’s narrative style makes this a stand-out read – it’s a cross between Cahterine Tate’s Lauren and Vicky Pollard... There’ll be comparisons with Jonathon Coe’s The Rotters’ Club and Sue Townsend’s Adrian Mole, but this is a journal for the Noughties’ Gay Times
‘Combines the coolness of Queer as Folk with the tenderness of Adrian Mole’ Elle
‘A fresh and funny coming-of-age story, this will appeal to the misunderstood teenager lurking within us all.’ Marie Claire
So what if your parents hate each other and want you to have therapy? So what if your holier-than-thou sister (aka The Nun) and her posse have decided you’re going to hell? So what if the school tyrant and his goons are hunting you down, or if your best friend has just outed you to a neo-Nazi? Jaz isn’t planning to lose any sleep over it – at least until he meets the guy of his dreams at the local gay bar. Suddenly things are a lot more complicated...
