“You do realise, don’t you Mum, that most students revert to adolescence in their first term away? The girls will flirt, the boys will show off and you’ll have to fend off some very dodgy bad breath in those morning seminars. You’re gonna love it…”

Life is about to get very hectic for the new cohort of trainee teachers…

How will Mary cope with working with people younger than her own children?

How will Anna cope, having lived in her sister’s shadow all her life? Or Donna, with her dark secret which threatens her future career?

How will Gabriel cope with the new love of his life? Or Kathryn, who has lived such a sheltered existence and is moving away from home for the first time?

And how will Callum, the gaffe-ridden, rugby-playing womaniser, cope with suddenly being thrust in front of a class of nine-year-olds?

With its array of colourful characters, hilarious anecdotes and poignant moments, Hot-Fussing will have you rooting for tomorrow’s teachers, as they try to negotiate their way though their first year at University.

John Mower was a primary school teacher for 19 years and has spent the last 15 years training new teachers into the profession. The world of education and the wonderful characters, both children and teachers, that he has met during this time have inspired him to write this novel.

John’s first novel, First Class, was also a comedy and was set in a primary school. It told the story of a newly qualified teacher and his attempts to control, inspire and teach a class in their final year before moving to secondary school.

John lives in Hemel Hempstead with his wife Claire and their two grown-up children, Nicholas and Megan.
