11 August 2014
This is not a story for the faint hearted. You will feel frustrated and desperate that you can't reach in and help the main character, a young boy called Robbie, or shout out to those who can! It is a gritty and powerfully written story, set in the Edinburgh far from tea rooms and lawyers offices, but beset by poverty and hardship in the shadow of age old football rivalry. With his parent's marriage in tatters, Robbie tries to cope on his own, keeping his struggle secret from others around him. Emma Mooney skillfully keeps the reader hooked, alternating chapters with the story through Robbie's eyes with that of the women in his life. It is deeply moving and thought provoking - an amazing first novel.
