An original, unusual and fascinating collection of short stories from multi-award winning author, Anne Fine.
Everyone thinks they know what it's like, going to school. But have you ever wondered what life must be like at a boarding school? A school for young offenders? A school for the blind? With her trademark humour, insight, sensitivity and razor-sharp wit, Anne Fine explores these different worlds in a short story collection that will fascinate young readers.
“These ten stories are engaging and funny, written in brisk, uncomplicated prose that will appeal to any reader”
Josh Lacey, Guardian
“The writing is elegant and crisp throughout. Heartstrings are pulled with no trace of sentimentality. I think readers of this book, whether they go to boarding school or not, will love it for the light it sheds on an experience which can be painful for many children”
Adele Geras, Awfully Big Reviews
