Welcome to Every Town in Britain, an awesome abyss where cultures and communities come together, but only with the help of riot gear, and where drugs aren't a trendy cliche but a necessary evil, consumed not just to get off but to get by. Post-industrial but far from post-class, the people in this forgotten corner of the world are waiting for what comes next - and running out of patience. Made in Britain is a story about growing up in a place like this. Connected by circumstance, the three sixteen-year-old narrators weave a twisted tale of love, lost youth and good old-fashioned violence spanning school, GCSEs and the longest summer holiday of their lives.
