Synopsis

Jonah from Tonga by Chris Lilley

After being expelled from Summer Heights High, Jonah Takalua was banished to Tonga to live with his Uncle Mamafu, but now he is causing more trouble than ever. Sent back to Sydney, Jonah wants to make his family proud, but while he might be in a new school, he's still up to his old tricks: gangs and graffiti, fights and frenemies, breakdancing and law-breaking. Revisit the antics of Jonah, the teenage Tongan rebel, and meet his Fobba-licious crew in this full-colour graphic novel adaptation of Chris Lilley's hilarious hit television series. WARNING: contains adult content.
