An excellent read

Added 2nd April 2017

This book appeared on my Lancs50books because it is one of The Lancashire Book of the Year shortlisted titles for 2017. It is simply heart wrenching such a sad story of child abuse and the ensuing outcome of that abuse. June is the main character and you do feel all of her emotions as the story unfolds. It is balanced by her relationship with a boy called Blister and the simple joys they discover. Highly recommended for YAs and beyond.

a "must" read by Janet

Added 5th June 2017

A heart-breaking insight into what can happen behind closed doors and how true friendship can overcome anything and restore faith in mankind.

A gripping story with vividly portrayed characters. I just couldn't put it down.


Added 13th June 2017

Abusive stepmother, a seemingly blind father, a girl too scared to say and a nail biting end.

Gripping but sad

Added 29th August 2017

I found this book difficult to read because of the subject matter but it was gripping nonetheless.
