THE GROSTON RULES is an edgy book for high school readers. With suspenseful twists and turns, it is a captivating and lighthearted high school tale about teens in trouble, surviving high school through their strong friendships.
Adults, young adults and mature teens won't be able to put it down, because the story is as much about teen survival and unschooling as it is a young adult coming of age tale, rife with dark humor, teen comedy, fuck ups, and the occasional raunchy teen story. It's a fast paced laugh out loud book that teenagers will actually read – a naughty high school teen comedy that you can't put down.
All they wanted was to get high and graduate...
Isaac, Adam, Helen, Charlie, Sean, Jésus and Rover had planned on coasting through their final semester at Ashby Bryson High. They called themselves Team Bomb Shelter, and their plan was simple, get stoned, play video games, get into college, and get the hell out of Groston.
Instead, they get caught up in chaos.
Adam assaults two football stars. Fat Charlie's father nearly dies of a heart attack. Jesus can't make his art while chauffeuring his siblings. Rover's never had a date. Helen's house is destroyed in a flood. Sean is coming out of the closet. And Isaac can't get into college to save his life.
The last straw is when Ashby Bryson High School is suddenly shut down, and they're bussed to Fectville Regional, which sucks.
But every time Team Bomb Shelter gets knocked down, they get up again, come together, and solve their problems. They throw the rules out the window and make up their own.
THE GROSTON RULES is like a humorous buddy war movie, with high school as the battlefield. Everyone in Team Bomb Shelter has their own challenges, but by working together, they overcome and ultimately triumph.
Advance Praise for THE GROSTON RULES:
