Melvin Burgess | Kill All Enemies | Author interview
I'm really impressed with Melvin Burgess's book Kill All Enemies.
The YA author did extensive research speaking to teens and staff involved in PRUs, pupil referral units before writing the novel. It's a portrait of Britain's underclass, to a degree, a timely reminder post Riot Britain that teenagers behaving badly is not a black and white issue, a simple issue, but often very complex.
I've just interviewed Melvin and will post an extract in due course.
