"dangerously funny"

Hold the front page, or, at least, update the digital edition: a young adult book has landed that isn’t set in a dystopian warzone, doesn’t involve a bleak tale of terminal illness, abuse or hate. Absolutely no one dies. Although readers may collapse laughing because, shush, it’s dangerously funny... In among the jokes (and they really zing) there is comment on the new sexually fluid generation and how we educate our children. To the parent, every line rings true — this is a writer with real live teenagers and he is especially good on the ups and downs of sibling relations [and] young love... Sutcliffe is gifted and talented. I hope the prizes flood in. I’ll be giving this to every teenager I know.
