Hi Sinead, Your book review makes me want to go out and buy a lottery ticket and read the book. I bet I have better odds finishing the book then I would winning the lottery.
Sinead - did you realise Samdy MacKay lives in Dunedin? She was a librarian at a school that I used to work at a few years ago. While she was working, she would watch children and teachers and base her characters on her observations. I have to admit - this book is one of my favourites that she has written.
