The Revenge Files of Alistair Fury: Exam Fever Synopsis

Alistair Fury is out for revenge. No more running errands. No more being called 'Alice'! It's payback time for his embarrassing mum, his bone-idle dad, and his constantly teasing older brother and sister. Only Alistair's two best friends - and this, his private diary - share his secrets. Culminating in a scene involving a snake, a toupee and a live TV broadcast, Alistair tries to wreak spectacular revenge but it doesn't exactly go according to plan . . . In lively and accessible diary form, this is a story of family life at its funniest, packed with schoolboy humour .
