When five young British teens learn they have the last lunch period at school, they hatch a plan to avoid "concrete chips" and cold food. Narrator Clare Corbett lends authenticity and youthful spirit to this clever group, bringing their personalities and diverse backgrounds into school life and problem-solving. When the students realize all they need to do is join clubs to leave class early and get fresh food, they plan to outsmart their teachers for the rest of the year. Corbett makes listeners forget she's one woman as she creates eccentric teachers, unique kids, and realistic situations. An interesting look at a contemporary British school.
