Socks Are Not Enough

Publisher: Scholastic

Review

Mike Swarbrick's life couldn't get any worse. His pervy best friend gets him embroiled in a scandal involving the girls' changing rooms, his idiot of an older brother is snogging the girl of his dreams and he's just come home early from school to discover his parents are secret nudists... but they're ready to go public!

A chain of events beyond his control are set to RUIN HIS LIFE. But instead, his teachers think that he's having trouble "dealing with his feelings". The result is that Mike's forced to meet with the school councillor who thinks that a "cool" university professor can fix his problems. And so begins Mike's "Chats with Chas" which really are as humiliating and cringe-worthy as they sound.

Shortlisted for the 2012 Roald Dahl Funny Prize, this is a hilarious story sure to entertain.
