Kemp's style of writing is pretty basic but that's what I personally enjoy about it.
He's got so much knowledge about gangs that I guess he decided to throw his hat into the author ring and give it a burl. Sometimes I don't want a story that is full of big words or some kind of story that has a million characters or some complex storyline..

I only wish my school had! Maureen McCarthy captured what I would call 'male teen angst' really well in this novel. Kelly has a 'magical' moment when meeting the son, 'Con', of the local Pizza shop owner while placing an order to be delivered to her party later that evening. It is well written and flows quite well, the story kept good pace and I felt there could have been a lot more added.

Kelly's estranged mother and brother, her fathers alcoholism and even her first sexual encounter are all really glossed over. The novel is set in Melbourne, using real street names and places that made it really easy to identify with. But Lygon street has always been known for its Italian influence, cuisine and stores, the rest of the area has the old European feel. May 29, Lauren rated it liked it Shelves: While the story was very challenging, I'd have to say that the overall message troubled me.
It seemed to have the idea of what wasn't love right, that being a relationship born out of convenience and mutual attractiveness.
But it didn't hit the nail on the head with what love actually is. It made romantic love seem like something that happens when you see someone and can't get them out of your head, even though you don't know much about them. If you get 'that feeling' then it's love. If that wer While the story was very challenging, I'd have to say that the overall message troubled me. If that were true I would have been 'in love' with countless actors I've seen in movies over the years and Edward Cullen would have had a truck load of women who were genuinely 'in love' with each him.
I don't like those kinds of messages hidden away in serious books. It makes it seem more real, which it's not. Ganglands though was interesting and held my attention. Reasonably well written, though nothing to get excited about.
