This is the first Jennings book and my first Jennings book, read for a Facebook group challenge. I enjoyed it, but not so much so that I’ll be rushing to buy all the others. The book sees Jennings and his friend Darbishire starting at prep school and having to get used to the written rules, the unwritten rules and the slang. In sitcom style, Jennings takes everything very literally, there are a lot of mistakes with words, and various misunderstandings result.
It was genuinely funny and I enjoyed reading it. And I loved our boy saying that he wanted to play for United. But, as I said, I don’t particularly feel the need to read the rest in the series – although I can see why people do. Genuinely funny.

I remember enjoying it at the time.
