About this book
A story of one girl's courage in the face of prejudice and hardship within a small community in Ireland. This is not an issue-based story of teenage pregnancy, but a wholly original novel for teenagers and adults alike. Ages: 12+.
After Shell's mother dies, her religious father descends into alcoholic mourning and Shell is left to care for her younger brother and sister. Her only release from the harshness of everyday life comes from her budding spiritual friendship with a naive young priest, and most importantly, her developing relationship with childhood friend, Declan.
