Until the day I died, I led my life in an exceptionally ordinary fashion. An ordinary boy with an ordinary life and with ordinary dreams.
James Clark is one of the main characters of Desperate Schoolboys. A relatively shy young man, James serves as one of the titular characters of the series, as well as its omniscient narrator. The series is triggered by James' tragic murder by an unknown attacker, and following his death, his best friends - Ben, Joe, Josh and Rena - reunite to try and make sense of the tragedy, all the while trying to cope with their own personal woes, woes that James is more than pleased to share with us, providing us with insightful and moral commentary on the living all the while.
