Spud’s blow-by-blow account of the agonies of an 18-year-old is insightful, intelligent and, most of all, funny.

As an avid Spud fan I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this, the fourth and final instalment in the bestselling series. The book kicks off with a hormone-riddled Spud getting a cringe- worthy sex-talk from his eccentric dad. Things don’t get easier when soon afterwards he arrives at his posh boarding school and must fight for a room.

But no sooner does he settle into his newly elevated status as prefect than he’s faced with more challenges than he ca handle – among them his unpredictable form on the sportsfield and inability to master maths. Then he has to direct his first house play with lead actors who refuse to learn their lines. But nothing comes close to the agony of trying to find a date for the matric dance. Will Mermaid, the love of his life, say yes?

Spud’s blow-by-blow account of the agonies of an 18-year- old at the crossroads of his life is insightful, intelligent and, most of all, funny.
