Black Swan Green - Waterstone's [Special Edition]

 
9780340924211: Black Swan Green - Waterstone's [Special Edition]

January, 1982. Thirteen-year-old Jason Taylor - covert stammerer and reluctant poet - anticipates a stultifying year in his backwater English village. But he hasn't reckoned with bullies, simmering family discord, the Falklands War, a threatened gypsy invasion and those mysterious entities known as girls. Charting thirteen months in the black hole between childhood and adolescence, this is a captivating novel, wry, painful and vibrant with the stuff of life.

Hugely touching and enjoyable. (Rachel Cooke, Summer Reads Observer)
