Welcome to the heart-wrenching, ever-erring world of Raymond Marks, a normal boy from a normal town. Until, that is, in the wake of the Transvestite Nativity Play Scandal, the ill-fated flytrapping crze begins - a craze that involves fifteen boys, a number of flies and an intimate part of the male anatomy... after which, Raymond's world is never quite the same again.
Full of memorable characters and with an utterly engrossing plot, The Wrong Boy is one of the funniest and most moving novels you will ever read.
"Humour, optimism, and sparkling dialogue propel the story forward to its unlikely but satisfying conclusion."
