4* Review: The Girl Who Lived By The River – Part Two – Mark Daydy


Blurb - Coastal

It’s the long hot summer of 1976 and Tom is absolutely clear on one thing – Claire is definitely the girl for him. Unfortunately, she’s going out with a guy called Steve. Depressingly, Steve is slightly taller than Tom and has chest muscles.

But what if Tom could get Claire to join the band he hasn’t yet formed? And what if they actually played a gig? Would that convince Claire that Steve was the wrong guy?

And what of Tom’s family? Who belongs and who doesn’t? And why does Grandad keep changing the subject when asked about it?

My Review - Coastal

The Girl Who Lived By The River: Part TwoNow in 1976, Tom has left school and is experiencing the world of work first hand. Tom’s grasping boss dulls the attraction of the money in his pocket. School starts to look the more attractive option but will they take him back?
This nostalgic look at the seventies leaves no stone unturned. It’s hard to imagine some of the incidents in the twenty-first century, but they are frighteningly accurate.
Still keen to be a rock star and find his first girlfriend, Tom treats the reader to lots of poignant and humorous moments, in his teenage life. The writing is authentic and easy to read and the engaging dialogue and vivid imagery draws you in.
A tale of the life of an ordinary teenager in the late seventies, brought vividly to life with clever writing, I can’t wait to find out what happens next.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
