The Lovereading4Kids comment
January 2014 Book of the Month An entertaining diary told in the authentic teenage voice which captures the mind set of humorist and risk-taker Ben Fletcher. Following a run-in with the authorities, Ben Fletcher is now obliged to ‘give something back to the community’ to make amends. Ben decides he can make the best contribution by joining the knitting class. It’s an unusual choice which could ruin Ben’s chances of being taken seriously by girls forever. But Ben turns out to have made a clever choice.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Boys Don't Knit a small number of members were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'I found this story great and it is a brilliant mix of stupidity, genius and second-hand embarrassment' Charlotte Crisp

Boys Don't Knit by T. S. Easton
Ben Fletcher must get to grips with his more 'feminine' side following an unfortunate incident with a lollipop lady and a stolen bottle of Martini Rosso from Waitrose. All a big misunderstanding of course. To avoid the Young Offenders unit, Ben is ordered to give something back to the community and develop his sense of social alignment. Take up a hobby and keep on the straight and narrow. The hot teacher he likes runs a knitting group so Ben, reluctantly at first, gets 'stuck in'. Not easy when your dad is a sports fan and thinks Jeremy Clarkson is God. To his surprise, Ben finds that he likes knitting and that he has a mean competitive streak. If he can just keep it all a secret from his mates...and notice that the girl of his dreams, girl-next-door Megan Hooper has a bit of a thing for him...
