Life’s pretty hard when you’re a misunderstood and spotty teenager living in a cul-de-sac in '80s Leicester. Adrian’s life simply can’t get any worse—until new girl Pandora joins a class and captures his heart. But can Adrian win her love and escape from the school bully and his chaotic family life?
