This collection of short stories all feature the same group of teenagers in Britain. A knowledge of “Ali G” speak is required to decipher the Brit/Paki/ Rasta slang …e.g. “Bwoi” = boy, and I have issues with this book because I don’t think Yas will get the “you reap what you sow” message. First story where boy gets put in hospital very powerful, as he is the one who sees the “domino effect”. Story about the missing child is ok too except the cop smokes pot at the end! Mixed messages – stealing, swearing, drugs, sex, racism, drinking – it’s all here for your reading pleasure…NOT!p.74-81 Henry disappears at the carnival..(note language)
