Sobre o livro
Perfect for fans of Daisy Styles and Rosie Clarke.If you loved An Education, Good Girls Revoltand Made in Dagenham then this is for you.
It's 1964. Best friends Sandra and Linda live on a housing estate in Essex. They are mods: they have the clothes, a coffee bar with a juke box andReady Steady Go! on television on a Friday night. And they have the Corn Exchange, where the best bands play.
But the world around them is changing fast. Against the backdrop of the Ban-the-Bomb marches and clashes between mods and rockers, it's time for Linda and Sandra to grow up.
As Sandra blindly pursues a marriage proposal from local badboy Danny - who spends more time in jail than out - Linda finds herself disatisfied and drawn towards causes she knows are worth fighting for. Then she meets enigmatic Sylvie - an ostracised, troubled young woman who has made all the wrong choices, but knows a lot about life outside the estate.
Linda finds herself pulled in two directions and must make a choice, unless the trouble she finds makes the choice for her . . .
