Another good read from Shane Dunphy
on 11 April 2014
I've read all of Shane's books and really enjoyed every one. This was a bit different, but still interesting and I couldn't put it down.
This is the first book Shane has written since his best friend Lonnie died. We occasionally 'meet' Lonnie while Shane is 'getting his head round' what he needs to do with his life. He worked in a special needs creche but was also involved in child protection work. He decided to take a change of direction, move away and work as a part time journalist and part time teacher.
It's during his journalist job that he comes across the Blaneys and their children and Shane has to come to terms with the fact that (with Lonnie's help) he can't get away from child protection.
I won't give the story away by saying I liked how Lonnie ended up being the genie in the lamp for one of the Blaney children and then disappeared from both Shane and the child Emma Blaney, once they were both sorted out in their minds.
This is another good read. Roll on the next one.
