Just Take Charlie
Christmas day, 1997. Somewhere on the south coast of England, dress-wearing virgin, Charlie Lewandowski, is about to turn fifteen. His best friend, Jack, has just started dating a girl with two anuses and a serious attitude problem. His father has disappeared and his mother is having a nervous breakdown. Charlie has bigger things to worry about, like memory blanks and being accused of rape. Charlie’s life is all about time. In a week he’ll no longer be a virgin. In a month, Jack will be dead. In six weeks Charlie’s life will never be the same again, but at least he’ll finally understand those blanks in his memory.
Vernon God Little spliced with a contemporary Catcher In The Rye (with some very different twists), Just Take Charlie is a weird and wonderful debut novel.
