My first attempt to go beyond the established “humour” authors almost stopped in the first chapter. However, one I got over the “nob” shock factor, the story of sixteen year old Sam showed potential. I laughed at different episodes and think it would have reasonable appeal to a teenage (male) audience. It is light weight, but I found the premise of Sam writing a story (as Jack Samsonite about his week) for his English teacher and yet including a twist in the end, appealing. It has some of the irony of Adrian Mole but is less subtle. Worth considering.
