AbstractHistoryArchive Description

It's just another year of getting into strife at school and mucking around with his dog at home for Tas - until he meets Enya the new girl at his school. She is different from the others - cool and calm. She becomes a special friend to Tas. But the violence that Enya thought she had left behind in Northern Ireland catches up with her, and this in turn has a devastating effect on Tas. His life will never be the same again. -- from Trove record
