Joey and his two best mates are on vacation on the sunny island of Gran Canaria. All is great apart from his Mum's constant phoning to ask him about various aspects of their family business - A pub in London. 
Later on, when Joey starts to moan about the workload his parents are placing on him, his mother decides to hire a new cellar hand to work on Saturdays. But life is about to get a whole lot more complicated, as a boy from Joey's school has immediately applied, and it's someone he thought he had left in his past.

Wonder what happens when a young man finally confronts who he is?  This is a great story of love, drama, and the difficulties teens go through in emerging into their true personalities.  Joey has a wonderfully supportive and loving family which he doesn't realize until exposed to the life of Jack Staunton.  What happens will excite, sadden, anger, and warm the reader's hearts.  This is a wonderful read!!!

If you want to skip this review go straight to weinerdog’s excellent comments.   He expresses my feelings perfectly. 

still, I have spent weeks of forced rest reading GA. I’ve revisited the God’s like Mark Arbour 🙇‍♀️ , Carlos H 🙇‍♀️, but the best read of the summer has easily been the collection shared day by day by James Matthews.  
the Saturday Boy is a great read; sassy, sexy, serious,  this is good stuff.  
enjoy 😉 I did.

This amazing story is about Joey a boy who works for his parents at there pub and Jack a person his parents hire as The Saturday Boy.

Of course these stories are never straightforward or run smoothly. We discover that Jack and Joey had an incident a few months back.

We meet Joey's best friends Dean and Shaun whilst they are holidaying together.

This story takes us on ride that tests the friendships and family relationships both positively and negatively.

We encounter some really sweet moments within the story but as with alot of stories, there are difficult and tragic moments.

The story is set in a typical London Pub, so the non English readers will get a fantastic education into the life of the British teenager.

A truly fantastic story, highly recommended and I look forward to Part 2 of The Saturday Boy.

My main purpose for writing this is so the story would have 5 stars next to it so people would take notice and read this story. I'm not good enough with words to adequately describe how good this story is.It centers around three almost lifelong friends along the way you are in for a rollercoaster ride of coming to terms with who one is, friendships being tested and family relationships both negative and positive. There are some very tragic moments but many, many more sweet heartfelt moments  with a lot of relevant issues of the day dealt with very realistically.If you're a Yank like me you will also find subtle differences in teen culture with the Brits as opposed to the U.S. for me that was educational.In closing I say stop reading this flawed review and start reading this great story.
