Longlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2014
Be transported to the light-dark heart of English summer. Barley fields turn to blood as farmers and travellers clash. A moving and beautiful book about the summer that changed one girl’s life, as her mum leaves home, travellers set up camp in the family field, her older brother goes off the rails, and she falls in love for the very first time. The book opens with a funeral. Iris is mourning the boy in the casket – but who is it? Sam, her tearaway brother? Trick, her tentative boyfriend? Over one long hot summer, we find out how a clash of two worlds has turned three young lives upside down…
