Summary

It s Belfast, 1977. The King is dead and a 14-year-old boy wearing Denim aftershave has just been appointed breadboy in the last Ormo Mini-Shop in the world, delivering bread to the residents of the Upper Shankill on Saturday mornings. He s all grown up now, so he is, and nearly shaving.

The Bee Gees fill the airwaves, everyone is in love with Princess Leia, and Breadboy s love of peace and pets is soon rivalled by his interest in parallel universes and punk...and girls, especially Judy Carlton who sits opposite him in chemistry. Sooner or later, Breadboy is sure they ll become a proper couple like Paul and Linda, and Judy will be his girl.

There are rivals at school and dangers on the streets, but Breadboy is hopeful, so he is. He is a good Breadboy. He delivers.

As does Tony Macaulay, in this delightful sequel to the critically acclaimed Paperboy.

Put a big smile on me face

Loved everything about this book. Reminded me of times I left behind many years ago.

The way in which he described his childhood enabled me to visualise every scene. Looking forward to reading more...
