It's the F-word - funny, foul-mouthed, fantastic! * Charlie Higson *
So surprising and charming it would be hard not to feel a little uplifted * Observer *
Beautifully observed and hilariously uncomfortable ... Mint has a certain charm, and his mangled language and omnivorous approach to slang suggest a lively, inquiring brain * Philip Womack, Guardian *
Energetic, confident and compassionate ... There's a genuine exuberance about it ... [Conaghan] is one to watch * Scotland on Sunday *
Entertaining * Big Issue *
One of the book's most engaging characteristics, its often hilarious (and often scatological) humour ... This is a portrayal of young male bonding, complete with all the lively banter of true camaraderie, at its most tender and affectionate * Irish Times *
Hilarious * Stylist *
