Growing Pains

Xavier Velasco

NOVEL. ALFAGUARA, 2013. 312 PAGES.

This is the story of the worst student at school. Correction: the worst student in the entire history of the school. Almost fourteen years old with a bunch of losers for friends and a report card scrawled with red ink, our protagonist can only get by at his boys-only school by constantly dreaming of the female neighbours he's never even dared to say hello to.

This novel tells the story of one of those tortuous adolescences where everything seems to be going wrong, a boy so desperate to get on with living that he's liable to press down on the accelerator with his eyes closed, until one day he wakes up in an authentically adult hell where laughter is just another tool for survival.
