Definitely for the older teenager, Burchill has written about a gritty, urban and larger than life world. Itâs smart, funny, full of wit – the Julie Burchill trademark – and it really captures the life and soul of teenage angst and heartache. Friendships are well drawn and the storylines will have you hooked from the off.

Synopsis

Sweet by Julie Burchill

'Some people tread water all their lives. Not me. I'm gonna make a big splash. I could see myself living the good life, chasing the sun ...feet up, glass in hand, no worriesâ. After a short stay at Her Majesty's pleasure, Maria Sweet, aka Sugar, is back. Her husband may have done a runner, taking their daughter with them, but at least she has a plan: get a job, get some cash and get the hell out of Brighton. And somewhere out there in the big bad world is Kim Lewis, who might just be the Love of Sugar's Life after all. Course, Sugar's not about to settle for a soul-sucking McJob, instead she's landed a stint as a model for local fashion designers Agnew & Bagshawe. But when she discovers they've used her not so much as a muse but to amuse, she's hell-bent on vengeance and that can only lead to chaos ...Sugar is as defiant and outrageous as ever in this riotous sequel to Sugar Rush, Burchillâs best-selling teen novel.
