A gritty, humane and darkly funny novel about making a life and finding a connection in London.
Kim is a streetwise ‘problem teen’, intelligent and charismatic. With no family or money, he gets by selling drugs.
Flow is Kim’s best friend. Living in a tough council estate he has a plan to get out. The only thing holding him back is his girlfriend, who may not be all that he thinks she is.
Clea comes from a wealthier area down the road, but she dreads returning home from school each day to her terrifying domestic life. A chance meeting with Kim and Flow inspires her to take the risk of a lifetime.
And then there’s the school principal with a secret, the lawyer with a heart of gold and the unhinged stepfather determined to keep control. Fate, and a cake-fueled food fight that goes viral, brings them together and forces them to finally face their demons.
“Tragedy and comedy in perfect proportion”
The Frog Theory is a a little gem
I totally love the Frog Theory, it’s a funny, quirky story of teenage life, love and angst. I couldn’t put it down and read it in one sitting. I felt I knew the characters and couldn’t wait to see what happened next. It’s a book written for young adults but equally suitable for adults.
