Sugar Rush

Sugar Rush - Julie Burchill Okay I re-read this (10/12) because I'd forgotten I'd read it (in 10/9/10) and it was actually quite gripping, like an episode of Skins. There's some weird race stuff which I need to think more about, that sort of Sarah Silverman-y "edgy" humor which I actually kind of hate most of the time but there's something real going on in this book so I just went with it. I don't know. I also couldn't parse the class stuff, but I think the narrator is meant to be from a more posh background, or middle-class? The various schoolgirl romances were well done, so that's something.
