LoveReading View on School for Scumbags

A good read for all those grown up naughty school boys who wish they could have got away with everything. Imagine being sent to a school where you are encouraged to hone all those mischievous skills you were previously punished for demonstrating. You will find yourself routing for the characters even though you know you shouldn’t but just enjoy the guilty pleasure.

School for Scumbags Synopsis

Habitual teenage delinquent Wayne Banstead is expelled from yet another school for sticking up the tuck shop and finds himself hauled off to Gafin School for Misdirected Boys: a ‘special school’ for ‘special children’. It plays host to the worst of the worst, the cream of teenage offending – thieves, bullies, arsonists and flashers. The teachers should have their work cut out, but things aren’t quite what they seem at Gafin School. Far from rehabilitating the boys, the teachers seem intent on instructing them in how to get away with things. The pros, the cons and the downfalls are all set out like an algebra equation. Even the school motto is a bit dodgy: Heliarnos Eto Umminass, or Help Yourselves Boys.

With careful tutoring, Wayne Banstead and classmates are about to take a step up into the big leagues. But in the big leagues, the big boys play for keeps. With lots of action, swearing and a great big robbery, Danny King’s latest is definitely not for kids.

School for Scumbags Press Reviews

Praise for The Burglar Diaries:

‘An absolutely hilarious, laugh out loud book by someone who has been there’ Bruce Reynolds, mastermind of The Great Train Robbery

‘Occasionally hilarious, if morally dubious, The Burglar Diaries is well worth buying – and definitely worth half-inching’ GQ

‘This is the sweet-as-a-nut, hilariously un-PC account of the jobs [Bex] has known and loved – the line-ups, the lock-ups and the cock-ups. If ever there was an antidote to Bridget Jones’s Diary this is it. The Burglar Diaries is the first in a series. Long may it run’ Mirror
