A day in the life of a group of 15-year-olds when they are let off school because a girl in their year has killed herself after relentless bullying. A cautionary tale of modern living, this story looks at the effects of bullying and the way in which a group of young people make some very difficult choices. Powerful, uncompromising and a novel of our times based on the hit film KIDULTHOOD.
Noel Clarke wrote the screenplay of KIDULTHOOD in his twenties and, on an incredibly low budget, he and George Isaac made a seminal film about the lives of young Londoners. Not since TRAINSPOTTING or CITY OF GOD has a story about violence, making choices and getting by in the urban jungle made such an impression. Noel has acted in many TV dramas and series including DR WHO and CASUALTY. He plays one of the lead characters, Sam, in the film KIDULTHOOD. Noel Clarke lives in West London in the area in which the story of KIDULTHOOD is set. Jim Eldridge, who wrote the novelisation, is a screenwriter and author as well as three time Bafta judge.
