Darcy means what he says. He just shouldn't say it aloud.

Darcy can cope with parents, parties and punch-ups. He can handle his infatuation with the beautiful Audrey, spending quality chess-time with his nerdy friend, Noah, even the misadventures of kayaking on a school excursion. He's a teenage boy, he can deal with it.

If only he'd learn to keep his mouth closed.

Crunchy, refreshing fiction from one of Australia's finest writers for young people.

Reviews

‘Darcy’s first-person narrative is sharp, reflective and witty delivering a simple tale that is fast paced but laced with poignant moments . . . The serious teenage issues of bullying, friendship, teen and family relationships are tackled but without the angst . . . Secondary students of both genders will enjoy this uplifting coming-of-age novel. A must for the collection.’ MAGPIES
