Made in Britain

by Gavin James Bower
£10.00   paperback  Quartet Books (2011)

Made in Britain by Gavin James Bower Welcome to Every Town in Britain, an awesome abyss where cultures and communities come together, but only with the help of riot gear, and where drugs aren't a trendy cliche but a necessary evil, consumed not just to get off but to get by. Post-industrial but far from post-class, the people in this forgotten corner of the world are waiting for what comes next - and running out of patience.
 
Made in Britain is a story about growing up in a place like this. Connected by circumstance, the three sixteen-year-old narrators weave a twisted tale of love, lost youth and good old-fashioned violence spanning school, GCSEs and the longest summer holiday of their lives.
