Stunningly real, breathtakingly relentless and shockingly funny, St Michael's Scales answers the questions about life that we did not know that we were asking. In the gym of Our Lady of Perpetual Help High School, beneath the statue of the Wrong-Hearted Jesus, Keegan Flannery begins his countdown to suicide. But Keegan's path is about to take some interesting turns. Into his life slam the enigmatic black-capped wrestler, Nicky Carpelli, the one-armed outcast, Nathan Looby and Angela Martinez, a senior with a safecracker look in her eyes. Looming always in the background is Keegan's father, a man who sent his seven-year-old son to prison just to make a point. Each one plays a part in this explosive blend of humour, wrestling, religious guilt, and self discovery.
