A forgotten gem that should be on the reading list of everyone, enlightening a fading facet of English Social History and a lesson in writing!.
Thoroughly enjoyed the re-read, better with age. It is a Whitbread/Costa Childrens fiction 1986 Winner. I now see why it tackles several subjects effortlessly, it is about a recently berieved Father and Daughter who move to start again from the south to the north of England during 1984 English Miners Strike. It covers the myriad of feelings a 14 year old
