Read full description of the books The Sweet Hereafter:Recipe for Russell Bank's Sweet Hereafter
17 dead teenagers
2 living teenagers
1 bus driver (female)
Five large scoops of ice and snow
1 small town
Approx 35 parents
Reporters (a handful will do)
1 oz morality
10 oz sentimentality
1 box soapflakes
4 boxes Kleenex
Sprinkle the ice and snow on the road. Tilt the road 25 degrees, with the edge of the road close to the edge of the river (this is called the banks). Add the teenagers and the driver to the bus and leave for 20 minutes. Set the bus at the top of the slope which by now should be fairly well covered in ice and snow. (If you have any strong wind, you can introduce that to taste). Allow the bus to roll backwards into the river. Stir. Wait for the bus and the teenagers to settle.
Add the morality, the sentimentality and the soapflakes. Beat with wooden spoon for a while.
Now add parents and lawyers to the mix. Wait for them to settle. This may take a while.
