Finding Out the Hard Way.
The hero of this book is in Year Seven. He comes from a family of soldiers. His brother is a thug. He has a gang called Misfits and a friend called Blossom. He has a sparkling writer career ahead of him. True or False?
In an attempt to unravel the truth about himself and his family, Wain writes down, on different coloured paper, three versions of the events in his life. Red is for telling the truth to someone who doesn't exist. White is for the truth the English teacher sees. Blue is the truth that exists in another world. But in doing so, Wain starts to reveal more than he intended . . .
