Spud: Exit Pursued by a Bear, John van de Ruit

17.99 AUD
'Dare I say it . . . for the first time in my life I feel like I'm on a bit of a roll.' 

Spud Milton is in his final year at boarding school. Now a prefect and on the cusp of adulthood, he thinks this may be his best year yet. But soon his life is as chaotic as ever as he wages a battle for his room, directs a play in which the actors refuse to learn their lines and (most terrifyingly of all) attempts to find a date for the matric dance.

For the last time, armed once again with his wits and his diary, Spud invites us to share the agonies, the victories and the sheer absurdities of growing up.
