Leonie Thorpe has captured the teen psyche with Dom and his mates brilliantly. ‘How to Sell Toothpaste’ is about ideas and how they are formed, subconsciously drawing on experiences or through completely random thoughts clicking together. It shows the frustration of hitting on a fantastic idea, to realise that it’s already been done or is about to be. This story is about the gateway – from the end of school to the future and what paths to take, and how daunting that can be.
