Cows (Little House on the Bowery, book 1) by Matthew Stokoe

It feels like every wild thought that came into Stokoe’s head found its way on the page and it doesn’t seem off-putting; it feels brave. Outside of the sex and violence, which could easily be mishandled in lesser Whenever things are going wrong for him, he immerses himself in celebrity gossip.
