I Was a Schoolboy Bridegroom Summary

I Was a Schoolboy Bridegroom by Alex Shearer

13 year old Bosworth Hartie didn't think his parents could inflict much more mental torture on him - isn't having the worst name in the world enough! Then they get it into their heads to find him a wife: a nice, dependable girl who will keep Bozzie on the straight and narrow.To Bosworth's horror they match him up with one Veronica Melling, a girl whose spiteful nature and butter wouldn't melt facade, guarantee that his life is hell. Bosworth decides to run away, the day before his so called engagement party - that should put an end to this ridiculous idea! What Bosworth doesn't know is that Veronica has the very same idea, and in a cruel twist of fate the two of them end up running away together - and hiding out in Veronica's gran's caravan by the seaside. Veronica turns out to be every bit as annoying and petty as he thought, but as the days go by, the two of them learn to rub along together, until, by the time their whereabouts are discovered, they actually kind each other. A wonderfully wry and nicely paced story of a microcosmic marriage...
