Humorous and perceptive tale exploring the pressures of teen life. Dominic has been studying for this history exam for weeks. So when he finds himself faking sick and following Lara, one of the coolest girls in school, off the grounds he wonders what's happened to his common sense. Both of them just feel like they've had enough. They need a day off - a day to just chill. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
Pete says, "It's a comedy-clash about two very different personalities, who discover they have more in common than they could ever have imagined. But it is also about teen pressure, which I think has never been greater. Pressure at school – but also pressure from social media.
"I really liked both Dominic and Lara and I hope readers will too.
"I'm thrilled too that it is another Barrington Stoke book, who have published some of my best-loved books, including, of course, 'The (Un)Teenager…' books, about Spencer, the thirteen year old, determined he will never turn into a teenager."
