Description

There is the secret of Birdy's dead grandmother's cat. How the boys tortured her and Birdy Flynn had to drown her in the river to stop her suffering. There's the secret of Mrs. Cope, the popular teacher, who took advantage of Birdy. And the secret of Gypsy Girl at school who Birdy likes, but can't mention. Because Birdy's greatest secret could change everything ...In this luminescent, sad and funny portrayal of a young person growing up amid an imperfect family, Helen Donohoe has created a beautifully nuanced and deeply felt novel. Whatever their own story, every reader will recognise in Birdy their own struggle to find their place in the world.
