Every parent’s dream – the perfect teenager…

‘I ain’t saying it was perfect here in Happy Valley. Then they came across the water. They were a bit different….a bit ‘creepy.’

Where did Frank and Audrey go wrong? They read all the books. How to be perfect parents. Raise the perfect son. Now Audrey is terrified when Sammy comes through the door. He drinks and takes drugs. Got expelled from three schools. Stole their savings. Brought misery to his parents.

Then they saw a flyer. It said: ‘Every parent’s dream – the perfect teenager.’ Enter Stefan. He’s like a teenage male Stepford Wife. Perfect in every way.

So what about Sammy? Well he’s being exchanged. Booted out.

And life is about to change forever. Brilliant and quite scary.
