Bad Apple

by Matt Whyman

Bad Apple Synopsis

A riotous dark comedy teeming with delightfully unacceptable behaviour. Like all good law-abiding citizens, sixteen-year-old Maurice no longer considers going off the rails as just a teenage phase. It can only mean the mark of a troll . . . But these trolls aren't confined to causing trouble online: now they're in our homes, on our streets and have ruined life as we know it. As a rule Maurice tries to avoid trouble - until the day he crosses paths with Wretch, a very bad apple indeed. And with tensions rising, can these two teens put their differences aside in order to survive?

Bad Apple Press Reviews

Riotous dark comedy about the culture of trolling. Whyman was recently on the creative team behind Joe Sugg's mega-selling graphic novel Username: Evie. * The Bookseller * Bad Apple by Matt Whyman is a dark comedy for teens full of unacceptable behaviour and certain therefore to be much loved reading! Featuring teenage trolls and wretches there are some very bad apples to be dealt with in this commentary on modern life * Armadillo Magazine * I recommend this one for those looking for a quirky, fun change of pace with a thought-provoking twist -- Bruce Gargoyle * * Whyman uses black humour and excellent dialogue to challenge stereotypes and preconceptions about societal and individual response to difference. The book can be enjoyed as a darkly humorous adventure but there is a deeper layer for the thoughtful reader -- Lesley Martin * The School Librarian *
