Shug is famous for his huge ears and is nicknamed "Shug the Lug" (lug being a Scots word for ear). Despite being old, Shug is extremely useful to the other OAPs of Craiglang due to being a self-proclaimed expert in radios and sound waves.
And now she has to start junior high, where the friends she counts most dear aren't acting so dear anymore -- especially Mark, the boy she's known her whole life through. Life is growing up all around her, and all Shug wants is for things to be like they used to be. Shand describes the Shug as a "full-on trail shredder" and has designed it with big tyre clearances (up to 27.5 x 3in) to maximise the amount of grip on offer. Shug's many roles make her an unpredictable and dynamic character who moves through a whirlwind of different cities, trysts, and late-night blues clubs.
