Two teenagers fall in love against the odds
Matt and Sophia both live in Leeds - but they should never have met. And they definitely never should have fallen in love.
Friends, family and circumstance are mostly against them rather than for them. They betray themselves; then they betray each other.
And in the end they learn, the bloody hard way, what it takes for love to survive.
Honest, gritty, laugh out loud at times, profoundly touching at others, "Everybody Hurts" is a classic romance with an anti-love story plot.
"Everybody Hurts" is co-authored. A "Fault in Our Stars" set in Leeds
NOTE: Contains strong language, sex scenes, lots of discussion of sexual activity, scenes of violence and underage drinking.
Superb characterisation - not only are the leads well drawn but supporting characters are also vivid & compelling & dual narration device is really effective. Unflinching in tackling big themes, it is both moving & very funny. Excellent.
