Welton Blake has done it! He’s asked out Carmella McKenzie ‐ the best-looking girl in school ‐ and she’s only gone and said yes!

But just as he thinks his luck is starting to change, Welton’s phone breaks, kick‐starting a series of unfortunate and humiliating events. With bullies to avoid, girls ready to knock him out and all the drama with his mum and dad, life for Welton is about to go very, very wrong …

Hilarity follows disaster in this sharp‐witted tale of the trials of teen life from award‐winning author Alex Wheatle.

“Wheatle’s characteristic lively language, impassioned Star Wars references and colourful invented insults make for a brief but riotously relatable slapstick romp, ideal for reluctant readers” — Guardian Barrington Stoke
