Jaz is one of those young people who want to find life as life begins to find them. Full of energy and witty asides, this fast-paced whirl through school, street and family will remind anyone of the joys and horrors of being 16.
So Grandma's just got out of hospital the day before and Mum and Dad have gone out to some local council meeting or something, which is probably Mum's idea of them spending quality time together. Since they're out I've been left in charge this evening, but I'm hiding with Al in my room. Al had to lie about where she was going so she could hang out with me. Her parents are pretty sure I'm going to turn her gay or something and so we're not supposed to see each other any more. They're like, total fascists.
