Told from multiple points of view, Screw Loose is a very funny, somewhat chaotic tale of a group of teenagers trying to navigate their way through the school year. The story is loosely underpinned by the Desperate Housewives-style machinations of uber-bitch Chelsea. We love this book! It's ridiculous, fresh and original, with lots of quirky humour and cheeky multiculturalism. It's so refreshing to read a book which doesn't glamourise or stereotype kids with ethnic backgrounds - these kids are real, and just as weird and complex as their Anglo friends. A laugh-out-loud funny, highly original and chaotic tale of a motley group of teenagers trying to navigate their way through the school year.

About the Author

Chris Wheat grew up in Melbourne, where he still lives and works. He takes an active interest in politics and education and believes everyone has to do something to help save the planet. He has lived a life largely without trauma, although he has been attacked by a lemur, three German shepherds and a tribe of monkeys; been twice beaten up by gangs; had a meat pie thrown at him by a stranger; and has slept in an igloo - not all on the same day. He has published four novels for young adults: Two-Stroke Shane , Loose Lips , My Excellent Lives and Grinders . He is happy to be a vegetarian.
