Hard to believe this is a debut novel. New Rules is a smart, captivating story that draws you in immediately to the exciting and sometimes dark underbelly of what it's like to be young and following your dreams in New York City today.
I really enjoyed the way Wilson wrote the story from two different points of view. He brings each character's hopes and flaws to life so well that I couldn't put it down. The rich references to New York City inspire me to take more advantage of the city. If you don't live in NYC this book will make you want to visit ASAP
A compelling read from first-time novelist Jeremy Wilson. If, like me, you're a sucker for books / films / shows (a) set in modern day NYC, and (b) told from multiple perspectives - then this definitely won't disappoint.
Young and trying to make it in NY, or thinking of coming, you definitely need to read this excellent novel. Especially if you have a music interest. This new novelist Jeremy Wilson from NZ writes in an engaging style that keeps you wanting to turn another page.
