The first third byWilliam Kostakis

The first third by Will KostakisLife is made up of three parts: in the first third of your life you’re embarrassed by your family; in the second, you make a family of your own; and in the end, you just embarrass the family you’ve made.

Seventeen year old Billy Tsiolkas has just received his grandmother Yiayia Filyo’s bucket list, which makes him realise that she will not be around forever to keep his family together. The list is nearly impossible to complete, and even more daunting with final exams, first kisses and a future in stand-up comedy interrupting most of his plans. Luckily for Billy, he has his best friend Sticks, (my favourite character) a growing friendship with Hayley and, to give him some invaluable advice, his grandmother… but for how long?
