Publisher Comments:

Sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll--London style--in a racy second novel about a teenager's taboo extracurricular activities. Disenchanted pretty-boy Ferdia is having a hell of a time. His dad has run off with an embarrassing pop star and his mom is shacked up with a local hooligan half her age. Meanwhile, gangs at school want to beat him to a pulp, and he feels increasingly detached from Matt (his pissed-at-the-world best friend) and their post-punk, "Tower block rock" band, Boybits (f.k.a. Coked-up Badgers). So when sexy Cassandra, the young, new English teacher, takes a very pointed interest in his music and wellbeing, Ferdia is thrilled, not to mention smitten. However, this is no ordinary schoolboy crush--the two can't get enough of each other. Ferdia's on cloud nine . . . until, on a dime, the line between lust and obsession proves razor thin, and a series of mind-blowing events--plus a shocking discovery about Cassandra's past--push him to the brink. Erotic, provocative, and gripping, Sky High has an intensity and pace that will leave readers breathless.

Synopsis:

A racy second novel about a London teenager's affair with his high school English teacher and other taboo activities.
