Sugar Rush by Julie Burchill
  

Synopsis

Sugar Rush by Julie Burchill

It's survival of the fittest at Ravendene Comprehensive - the terrifying teenage jungle for which Kim Lewis must trade her safe, posh private school. But help is at hand - in the unlikely form of the rude, raucous, toxic and tantalizing Maria (aka Sugar) Sweet, queen of the 'Ravers'. As Kim falls quickly under her spell, and gambles her good-girl past for an exciting life of late-night parties and daring emotion, she must ask herself a disturbing question: has she fallen in love with her best friend? Julie Burchill's Sugar Rush is saucy, shimmering, loud and larger than life - come get your sugar fix!

Reviews

A fabulous story of sexual fascination, guilt-free, intoxicating and delicious. -- Melvin Burgess
