I came across this book by accident as i`m from the area I bought it.
Within a couple of pages I was brought right back in the craigavon I grew up
in also back to the teenage confusion I thought I had forgot.
The language the imagery and the characters were
If someone doesn`t make a screenplay/film of this there is
something wrong as thats what it reads like.
It is a work of complete honesty and authenticity.
Laura Canning has managed to get into the head of a problem teenage girl and brings you with her in sympathy and a complete understanding of why someone would make the seemingly crazy choices she makes, you are left understanding how a child could end up going from a bad A to a horrendis B and the worrying thing is that it seems to the child a logical and correct route.
This amazing work should be on school sylabus as a warning to children and teachers alike.
and by the way it is also not without humour despite the subject matter
Amazing work is there a follow up?
