This is a collection of engaging new short stories from new writers such as Karen Mackinnon and David Martin, and from experienced writers such as Donald John MacIver.
These stories will take the reader on a journey from despair to hope, from Scotland to Haiti, and from gloominess to happiness.
The stories explore different aspects of life, the tiny details and the big questions.
There is a strong blend of realism and magic in this collection. From the very beginning the reader feels Naomi’s fear or Lee’s loneliness, but there is also humour and hope in the important questions the characters have.
This collection handles complex, weighty subjects in a way which is appealing and appropriate, and perfect for young folk.
Read it and enjoy it.
