Laura Cassady is a top girl, the best. Here, in our final year of university, with childhood behind us and real life looming, she is the only thing I am certain of. That she already has a boyfriend, James, is the least of my worries.
The real problem is trying to be more than just a boy for someone who is clearly not just a girl. Can boys be anything but thoughtless and selfish? Are all girls uptight and painfully beautiful? And is there any way that we can cohabit adequately, let alone happily?
Through pub-talk and ice-skating, nights in and nights out, we might find it more and more likely that we're all after the same thing: making one positive action, finding our right place.
Chatty and arch, Banes of Boys And Girls is a tale of first love, of decision-making, and of the certainty of youth as it is reborn into the confusion of young adulthood. It is the "impressive", "sharp and intelligent" debut novel by Jonathan Aldridge.
