    'Teenage kicks and Tatey bread: What Paperboy did next...'

    It's Belfast, 1977. The King is dead and a 14-year-old boy wearing Denim aftershave has just been appointed breadboy in the last Ormo Mini Shop in the world. He's all grown up now, so he is, and nearly shaving. 

    The Bee Gees fill the airwaves, everyone is in love with Princess Leia, and Breadboy's love of peace and pets is soon rivalled by his interest in parallel universes and punk...and girls, especially Judy Carlton who sits opposite him in Chemistry. Sooner or later, Breadboy is sure they'll become a proper couple like Paul and Linda, and Judy will be his girl. 

    There are rivals at school and dangers on the streets, but Breadboy is hopeful, so he is. He is a good breadboy. He delivers. As does Tony Macaulay, in this laugh-out-loud sequel to his critically acclaimed first book Paperboy.
