The Wailing on the While
by David William Kirby
Three school kids, two girls and a boy, run away from violence at home and school only to find the world a much more dangerous place. A nostalgic view of 1970's Essex, where the reader is transported into an alternate reality; giddy with sexual excess and tension. Sex, LSD and Jimi Hendrix provide the backdrop to this kitchen-sink drama; an adult story every teenager should read.
