Violence 101 by Denis Wright
My name is Hamish Graham and this is the journal I have to write. The people who run this place don’t know what to make of me. Just like the last place I was in.
It is obvious why I am here. I am here because sometimes I do very violent things and I’m too young to be put in jail.
‘One of the most riveting novels I’ve had the pleasure to read in a while.’
— The Marlborough Express
