The Big Scream
  • The Big Scream

  • Yale, Autumn, 2001. The new term is about to begin. Four young hopefuls from very different worlds stand at the entrance to their adult lives.

    Jackson is a promising young pianist - he wanted to go to Juilliard but his parents refused to pay for anything other than a 'proper' education.

    Skylar is the eldest of a huge Mormon brood with her sights firmly set on medical school and no intention of returning home ever again.

    Meena is a Scorpio, a second generation immigrant and a first generation blogging sensation, and she has several opinions about how to drag Yale into the twenty-first century.

    Obi has worked his whole life for this opportunity, skipping Saturdays at the beach, late nights studying with his twin sister, Adi - and then he got into college and Adi did not.

    Over the next days, months and years, four lives will change irrevocably, the fate of each interlocked tightly with the rest, each forced through the painful, vital crucible of human ambition.

Jim Malik is the voice of his generation.
