    Dear all,
    I am doing a project (or book is a better term) about my first year at university (ideally a book for every crazy year I experienced).. I graduated already and am reflecting on the biggest struggle I witnessed whilst going to university and it includes the conflict between ego and reality.

    I have started writing the manuscript for the first year which reflects the clash between people from different cultures studying in an international environment, the introduction of alcohol to students who came from countries with restrictive backgrounds, the introduction to a selection of students who normally wouldn't do class A drugs but due to the sheer nature of indirect peer pressure and the grim city, rain and boredom , it directed everyone into a spiral of conflict and momentary self-realization. With people dropping out first year, some coping with their mental health and others being directly prosecuted by the law, I think composing a non-fictional piece of work for a younger audience could be a breakthrough in TV shows (later on), something unseen since the launch of the first SKINS. However I want to stress that this will be focused on the eyes of 4 main people through the 3 years with the personal experiences highlighted throughout and people met throughout given a good background as well.

    I realized there is no good book on real effect and cause between relationships at university. You have high school drama works but that isn't the core of ones transition to adulthood, that begins really after high school. So pre university, post university people and current students. My question is, would any of you buy such a book?
