***Dubray Staff Recommended Read*** It’s 1979 and Maeve Mallen knows exactly what she wants – to do well in her A-levels, escape her small Northern Irish town and get to university in London. Taking a summer job in a local factory while she awaits her results, Maeve paints a picture of a childhood where fear and mistrust is woven into every memory. With her wit and keen-eyed observations, the character blazes from every page in this astonishingly good follow-up to Gallen’s debut Big Girl, Small Town.
