#AyUpAugust Day 12: #TooMuchTooYoung - admirable fortitude indeed among young people. Fats‘ review: “When Audrey was arrested and sentenced to one week in juvenile hall, along with thousands of children marchers, she realized that being in jail was more difficult than she‘d initially thought.” See here: https://wp.me/pDlzr-hTm

squirrelbrain Again, another gorgeous book! ♥️ 2w

What a heart-achingly good book. Like My Name is Leon, Kit de Waal has written about a really sensitive issue with compassion and integrity. Her style of writing is simple, to the point and incredibly clean, neat and tidy - de Waal is fast becoming one of my favourite writers. The detail in this book is so sad yet there‘s always a strong suggestion of hope. Simply beautiful narration by Fiona Shaw ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

BarbaraBB Sounds great. 2w

Such a beautiful book, addressing a heartbreaking subject with delicacy and gentleness (trigger warning in spoiler comment). It is so sad to think how recently we dealt with this subject so badly. Thank you again, Cathy, so very much, for gifting me this book. The story will stay with me for a long time.

Cathythoughts I‘m so glad you liked it ! It‘s a special book alright ♥️. You are looking very relaxed there ... enjoy 😘 2mo
CarolynM @Cathythoughts It's a very relaxing place 🙂 The only downside is a very unreliable internet connection that only works periodically and drops out after a few minutes😁 2mo

Posting our pics from Cork Book Festival, a great night .. so interesting to hear Ann Griffin & Kit De Wall reading & discussing their books. I felt like a real bookish kind of person. Weather was terrible ( storm Hannah ) but 3 of us braved the King Lear weather... great night ! Kit de Wall spoke of writing.. you can be a gardener or an architect ( a quote from George Martin ) .. isn‘t it a fab setting 😍pics of the whiskey tasting 👍🏻

squirrelbrain Looks like a fab evening! 4mo

“Mr. Connor, I say, never respected me but I respected him.”


This is a great book to show students the importance of standing up and fighting for what you believe in and for what is right.
