Swim The Fly

Call the Shots
Don Calame

Since his girlfriend broke up with him last summer, Sean's been on a starvation diet where girls are concerned. However, he's got other things on his mind. Like how to stop the soon-to-be-born family addition from stealing his room and making him share with his evil twin sister. When Coop suggests making a cheap-ass horror film to bring in the bucks he's a bit sceptical, but Coop is nothing if not persuasive… Zonkey! (a tale of 'half-man, half-monkey drones that mutate into hairy uncontrollable zombie-monsters with a thirst for human blood') is born. Join Coop, Sean and Matt in this hilarious sequel to Swim the Fly and Beat the Band, full of Don Calame's trademark wit and gross-out gags.

Swim The Fly

Beat the Band
Don Calame

Hot on the heels of Swim the Fly comes the side-splitting sequel Beat the Band, told this time from Cooper's perspective. When Coop finds himself partnered in a school science project on safe sex with social outcast 'Hot Dog' Helen, he's desperate to save his reputation. How to rescue his plummeting street gred? Win the school's Battle of the Bands. Because no one gets more girls than a rick god. Right?

Surely the fact that neither he nor his best friends, Sean and Matt, can actually play an instrument will stop them achieving rock-and-roll awesomeness...

Swim The Fly
Don Calame

Fifteen-year-old Matt Gratton and his two best friends, Coop and Sean, always set themselves a summertime goal. This year? To see a real-live naked girl for the first time. But this impossible mission starts to look easy in comparison to Matt's other challenge: to swim the 100 yard butterfly (the hardest stroke known to man) and impress the gorgeous Kelly West.

"Teen boys will find this book full of humour and will readily identify with the well-portrayed characters, who are just like teen boys everywhere." Parentsintouch.co.uk

"A great breath of fresh air in teen publishing … a really fantastic read." Waterstone’s Online

"Swim the Fly is the funniest book I've read for a long time, and one of only a handful to make me laugh without being able to stop. It's mostly about friendship, but you'll find some girls and swimming in there too." Wondrous Reads
