Made in Britain

by Gavin James Bower - £10.00  Quartet Books (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780704372290 | ISBN 10: 0704372290

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.
