About this book
South African comic John van de Ruit takes us inside the mind of his 13-year-old hero, as his eyes are opened to love, friendship and the complete insanity of the world! Ages: 12+.
Apartheid is crumbling, Nelson Mandela has just been released from prison and thirteen-year-old Spud Milton is about to start his first year at an elite boys - only boarding school. Cursed with embarrassingly dysfunctional parents, a nutty granny and a dormitory full of strange characters, Spud has his hands full trying to adapt to his new home.
