For Fidgie, growing up in the 1930s, the school holiday stretched ahead. With her friend Chaz as companion for idyllic summer days by the sea, she was able to escape her edgy mother and her older sister, Cly. Her father, mercifully, was away from home... Through Fidgie's eyes the events in August unfold: her family and neighbours become involved in adultery and other, darker, misdemeanours. The eight-year-old is an engaging and lively narrator; swept along in her compelling tale. Its conclusion is both tragic and inevitable. This 1998 Black Swan Paperback is in Good condition.
