Five teenagers. Five lives. One final year.
The school captain: Ryan has it all … or at least he did, until an accident snatched his dreams away. How will he rebuild his life and what does the future hold for him now?
The newcomer: Charlie’s just moved interstate and she’s determined not to fit in. She’s just biding her time until Year 12 is over and she can head back to her real life and her real friends …
The loner: At school, nobody really notices Matty. But at home, Matty is everything. He’s been single-handedly holding things together since his mum’s breakdown, and he’s never felt so alone.
The popular girl: Well, the popular girl’s best friend … cool by association. Tammi’s always bowed to peer pressure, but when the expectations become too much to handle, will she finally stand up for herself?
The politician’s daughter: Gillian’s dad is one of the most recognisable people in the state and she’s learning the hard way that life in the spotlight comes at a very heavy price.
Five unlikely teammates thrust together against their will. Can they find a way to make their final year a memorable one or will their differences tear their world apart?
📚 BOOK REVIEW 📚
‘The Yearbook Committee’ by Sarah Ayoub
Reading the blurb for this book – it was clear that I was embarking on this generations attempt of ‘The Breakfast Club’.
“Five unlikely teammates thrust together against their will. Can they find a way to make their final year a memorable one or will their differences tear their world apart?”
That is exactly what I got! Five teenagers, in their final year at school (NB. This is based in a prestigious school in Sydney, where the students are in Year 12, about to sit their HSC) who have been tasked with one thing – create the Yearbook.
As with most of these tales in the beginning, animosity fills the air as each of the teens are trying to read each other. But as time progresses, friendships and alliances are made.
Each chapter is written from one of the fives perspective, which is great as it gives you a true insight into each of the students; their friends and social circle, their home lives and their parents. Each with its own set of problems.
This was a great read – a quick read (polished it off in a day!) but still an enjoyable read 🙂
