Overview

For George, the UK city of Newcastle Upon Tyne is a foreign country...

George has made his way to the Big City, hoping to find a life more fulfilling than the one he left behind. But this town is very different place to the island 'paradise' he once called home, and manhood, as he will discover, is about more than doing a day's work or frequenting the local pub.

From boutique to bargain basement, stylish apartment to squalid houseshare, and happy ever after to the reality of falling in love, nothing is what the Boy expected. As George takes his first tentative steps on Tyneside, he meets a colourful cast of characters - from Ella, born in Shenzen but Geordie from her Vivienne Westwood heels to her perfectly coiffed crown. Then there is Lawrence, the older Man, who will challenge George to confront his own sexuality at every turn.

The lives of all three will be irrevocably altered as day-to-day existence in this constantly changing city forces them to make some tough choices.
The grass is not always greener on the other side, and life, even in this City, with its patriotic black and white stripes, is never so straight forward.

It kept me reading till the early hours! Highly recommended !!
