William Carlisle has the world at his feet but its weight on his shoulders. He is intelligent, articulate and f***ked. In the library of a fee-paying grammar school, William and his fellow Sixth-Formers are preparing for their mock A-Levels while navigating the pressures of teenage life. They are educated and aspirational young people, but step-by-step, the disclocation, disjunction and latent aggression is revealed.
William: a studious, slightly awkward teen who has fallen for the new girl at school
Lilly: The New girl, trying to find her feet and adjust to her knew surrounding, she is an intuitive but cynical person who also has a tendency to gossip
Bennett: A self-confident and arrogant individual who always commands the attention of the room and enjoys belittling and manipulating others. Doesn’t give a shit about school or grades
Cissy: The straight A’s coaster, intelligent and pretty, things seem to come pretty easy for her. She is Tanya’s best friend and dating Bennett
Tanya: the quieter, kinder best friend of Cissy, she can still joke around and be sexual when she wants to. Has a crush on a teacher at the school
Nicholas: The attractive, muscular lacrosse player, he is a quieter type, who struggles a bit more with his studies then some of his friends. He is the mediator of the group
Chadwick: a vastly intelligent but socially challenged young man, attending the school on a scholarship, who is constantly abused by his class mates
