Clueless Clarence

It is 2008 and Clarence Upton-Smyth, the middle child between two sisters, is fifteen going on sixteen. He has ginger hair, wears glasses and was diagnosed with mild autism when he was three. He knows a lot about music, maths, loves anything to do with the paranormal and, his latest interest, poetry. He is fixated on time so he can’t stand it if other people or things make him late for anything. He also hates waste, untidiness, being disorganised and small, confined spaces.

Clarence only has a few close friends who appreciate the fact – mostly – that he always tells the truth when asked for his opinions.

Clarence has a few confrontations with the school bullies and his neighbour. Also, there are a few embarrassing incidents – notably at a certain hundredth birthday party, a football match, a funeral and a wedding.

Clarence has always wanted a girlfriend; is this his year for love? And why is 5th April 2007 such a significant date?
