'Life is not a bowl of cherries. Suck it up.' April-May loves boys with green eyes, reading at the back of class and wearing non-regulation socks. April-May hates stuck up rich kids and two-minute noodles. Life at her new school would have been fine if Mrs Ho, the English teacher hadn't decided that April May was a no-good, trouble-maker, bursary-kid. April-May decides that Mrs Ho has to go. Then April-May meets the drop-dead gorgeous Sebastian, befriends the total suck up mouth-breather Melly and things get a little more complicated. "A Month with April-May" is a one-eyebrow-raised account of a teenager's trials and tribulations as she navigates a new school, a new family situation and a whole new way of life.
