Lex by James Mylet

Lex is seventeen. But being seventeen is a rollercoaster ride, and Lex is about to run into trouble. If he survives the humiliation of his final summer in his hometown, he is determined to go out with a bang. And he will, but it might not be quite what he had in mind. This coming-of-age novel will make you remember everything about your teens - the good, the bad, the embarrassing ...and the very ugly!


'A funny and charming story set in one of my favourite places in the world. And it was a great relief to discover it wasn't just me who felt like that at seventeen'
John O

'Farrell. John O'Farrell 'Lex is as warm, funny, evocative and toe-curlingly accurate a portrait of small-town adolescence as I have had the pleasure to read'
Christopher Brookmyre. Christopher Brookmyre

'Full of toe-curling teen mishaps, it's wise beyond its protagonist's years'
Daily Mail. Daily Mail

'Fresh, fast paced and funny, with a touch of poignancy. I loved it'
Irish Examiner. Irish Examiner

'Mylet's debut provides likeable banter, replete with furious expletives and some sombre coming-of-age moments'
Guardian. Guardian
