I will teach them literature, poetry, culture. I will teach them 'The Waste Land'! I will be the best teacher who has ever lived! Or so the Secret Teacher thinks. On his first day at an inner-city state school he gets nuked. The class he is made to cut his teeth on are an unruly mob stuffed with behavioural issues. There is Milosz, who is put in detention for committing the sin of onan with a Pritt Stick; Kieran, the class rebel; Donnie, a hard-working kid desperate for approval; Mercedes, a volatile rude girl; and Salim, who loves Bollywood and the number 5. Somehow, the Secret Teacher needs to enthuse this lot with a love of books. Or at least keep them sitting at their desks until the end of the lesson.
