I n order to write this review properly, I may need to contradict myself. However, since it's almost inevitable that steam will escape from some readers' ears, I can't ignore it entirely. The issue concerned is denoted by three words in small print on the back cover: "Some explicit content", and though I can now be accused of delivering a self-fulfilling prophecy, I will indeed discuss it. However, since William Nicholson saves it largely for the end, I will too. Rich and Mad represents a considerable departure from Nicholson's previous titles for young readers — the Wind Singer and Nomad trilogies, both works of fantasy. This is a contemporary novel dealing with the tangled love lives of a group of typical modern teenagers, in particular Maddy Fisher and Rich Ross. The plot, though it contains a few nice twists, is simple enough: both Rich and Mad are looking for love, though at the start of the book not with each other.
