Cross the movie Knight’s Tale with the Bordertown series, and you’re getting close to how freaking awesome this is.
Before this, I had never read Khaw’s work before. They mostly write horror, and I am a total whimp about horror.

A British Boarding School story by way of Mars! How can you NOT love that???
I couldn’t put it down for a second, and I did not want to.

Dark, glorious, multi-layered – utterly unmissable.
