Shawnie

by Ed Trewavas

What a haunting book. It makes you angry, sad and revolted all at the same time. If you can stomach the language, the sex and the violence it is a must read book - yet surprisingly even in this awful world there is a desperate humour.

Extract

We done sex ed at school now and everything we dooz is normal so I don't know why it's naughty look, but I knows it is naughty cos our Ma walked in one morning and found me wanking im off (that's what Jason calls it) and she nearly ad a ead fit even though we was only little and it was before e could squirt or nothing. If grown ups dooz it why can't kids, answer me that.
