“By the end of my first term of high school, Barry Bagsley had miraculously transformed me from Ishmael Leseur to Stalepiss Manure. And that summed up exactly how I felt.”
With a name that is sheer heaven to a bully with geek-seeking missiles, fourteen-year-old Ishmael’s main aim is to keep a low profile at school. But cajoled into joining the debating team, he suddenly finds himself thrust into the limelight with mortifying yet hilarious results. Join Ishmael and his intrepid band of misfit mates in what will become the toughest, the most embarrassingly awful – and ultimately the best – year of their lives!
