He finds himself surrounded by sadistic teachers and even worse pupils with only one morally ambiguous teacher to turn to.Unable to return home, he soon realises that to survive amongst the monsters he may have to become one. It’s just as well he’s indestructible and descended from Genghis Khan (according to his mum). Those warrior skills just might come in handy.Disturbing and scary, but above all funny and uplifting, Stonekicker makes us see that just getting through childhood is one of the toughest battles we are ever going to face.
