BILLY 9F Like Orwell’s 1984 — but even funnier! In 15-year-old Billy 9F’s world, the School is the centre of government and the Principal is the despotic Big Brother figure. All forms of humour have been outlawed. A smile, a laugh, even a single HA! is punishable by an excruciating electric shock to the neck — or worse, banishment to the deadly Clown Wars. All Billy 9F has ever wanted is to make people laugh. But in such a world, what is a natural-born class clown to do? BILLY 9F is about the importance and power of laughter. For readers 12 years of age to infinity.
