THE GROSTON RULES is an edgy book for high school readers. With suspenseful twists and turns, it is a captivating and lighthearted high school tale about teens in trouble, surviving high school through their strong friendships.
Adults, young adults and mature teens won't be able to put it down, because the story is as much about teen survival and unschooling as it is a young adult coming of age tale, rife with dark humor, teen comedy, fuck ups, and the occasional raunchy teen story. It's a fast paced laugh out loud book that teenagers will actually read - a naughty high school teen comedy that you can't put down.
All They wanted was to get high and graduate...
Isaac, Adam, Helen, Charlie, Sean, J sus and Rover had planned on coasting through their final semester at Ashby Bryson High. Get stoned, play video games, get into college, and get the hell out of Groston.
Instead, the shit kept hitting the fan - over and over and over again. Fights, floods, freezes.... And then school got shut down.
So, they threw the rules out the window and made up their own.
