Book Shout Out - FAG by Jonathan Hill

Jonathan Hill is one of several generous authors to provide prizes for the Sun Dragon launch event - 12 days to go! 'FAG' is his first full length novel and I have to say that's one of my favourite reads of the year so far. So much so I'm tempted to keep the prize for myself :-) I'll admit that the story is a little out of my usual reading comfort zone and maybe it is for you, but give it a try. It's superbly written and while it's emotional reading in places it's well worth the read.

To be in with a chance to win the signed copy or one of the other fantastic prizes on the day join the virtual launch event for Sun Dragon here:

Brierley's Boarding School for Boys, 1930s

Keen - a first year boy bullied viciously and mercilessly
Smythe - a ringleader intent on enforcing his fagging rights

A new term opens with appalling tragedy, the repercussions of which lead to devastating consequences. The headmaster, who will stop at nothing to cover up the incident, fights for the reputation of Brierley's, while several of the school's inhabitants are left fighting for their lives.

A novel of approximately 73,000 words. Readers should note that the book contains strong language, scenes of a sexual nature and adult themes.
