Birds Angry
DEEPLY troubled schoolboy Henry Flick (Flicko) keeps losing his lunch money gambling on the game Angry Birds with the only rich kid in class, Jamie Lloyd. Flicko would ordinarily just beat him up but Lloyd’s dad has recently died in Afghanistan. Flicko, with his best mate Cal, devise a plan to take their revenge another more sinister way. THEIR teacher, a lonely idealist, Mr. Smith, not only thinks he should protect his students from addiction to ruinous games, but save them from a life plagued by unemployment, alcohol, and violence. When Filcko’s brother, the newly crowned EDL top-boy and self-confessed psycho, becomes embroiled in the plan, Mr. Smith and his students are compelled to bring a very dangerous game to its conclusion. ANGRY BIRDS is an urban psychological thriller written by an emerging literary talent with a keen eye and deep sense of empathy for the dilemmas that haunt modern British society.
