King of Nothing – Nathanael Lessore – School Visit pre-order UoB

Nathanael Lessore

Pre-order for Nathanael Lessore author visit to University of Birmingham School 19th April

ANTON AND HIS FRIENDS ARE THE KINGS OF YEAR 9. They’re used to ruling the school and Anton wears the crown. The other kids run away when he’s about but that’s the way he wants it – he’s got a reputation to live up to after all.

So when he gets into serious trouble at school, he doesn’t really care, but his mum most definitely does. She decides it’s time for Anton to make some new friends and join the Happy Campers, a local activity group. Anton would quite literally rather do anything else, especially when he finds out Matthew, the biggest loser in school, is also a member.

But after Matthew unexpectedly saves Anton’s life, Anton figures maybe this kid is worth a shot. Teaching him some game is the least Anton can do to repay the debt. As the boys strike up an unlikely friendship, Anton finds himself questioning everything he thought was important.

Does he want ruling the school to be his crowning glory or should he set his sights on better things?
