First Time

By Nicholas Allan

Published Jan 2010

15 year old Jake has always been shy and sensitive in the past – but not any more. When he starts at a new school, Jake decides to re-invent himself as Mr Cool, with his penchant for Marlboros and double espressos, his mysterious older girlfriends, and an encyclopaedic knowledge of sex. Jake is terrified that the others – particularly gorgeous Ella – will see right through his bluff, but amazingly, they all seem to fall under his spell. Suddenly, it’s all working rather too well, but can Jake really carry off this new personality … all the way?
