Join Sean, Coop and Matt for the final time in this side-splitting sequel to Swim the Fly and Beat the Band. Full of Don Calame’s trademark wit, gross-out gags and plenty of heartwarming feel-good fun.
And, a Piece of Passion from Helen Boyle, Commissioning Editor, Templar Fiction.
In a YA book world of smouldering love stories, paranormal beings and dystopian survival tales, Don Calame's books are like a breath of fresh air. Take three teenage boys struggling to be cool and impress the girls, and you've got a series that will have you guffawing with laughter. There's something so contemporary and relevant about Don's writing which I love and which I feel is totally unique. Yes, it's the quick-fire comedy scripted with the precision and skill you'd expect from a Hollywood scriptwriter (which he is ). But it's so much more than just a collection of Inbetweeners-type gags. Each book is bursting with friendship, family and heartwarming moments, and like all the best books you really care about the characters. Call the Shots is the third and final title in the series. But don't worry, you can read them in any order. This time the boys have decided to make a home horror movie to raise some bucks and their street cred. And so Zonkey! is born – a tale of a part-man, part-monkey, vampire zombies. Hollywood gold surely? If you're looking for a YA book with heart, humour and great characters, look no further than Call the Shots, Beat the Band and Swim the Fly by Don Calame, you won't be disappointed.
Call the Shots by Don Calame
Since his girlfriend broke up with him last summer, Sean's been on a starvation diet where girls are concerned. However, he's got other things on his mind. Like how to stop the soon-to-be-born family addition from stealing his room and making him share with his evil twin sister. When Coop suggests making a cheap-ass horror film to bring in the bucks and pay for an extension to the house he's a bit sceptical, but Coop is nothing if not persuasive. Zonkey! is born.
