Red Moon: Secrets of a Sixties Schoolgirl
...Andrea's father has been killed crossing the road and her best friend dumps her shortly afterwards. Life is bleak, like the billowing furnaces and wild moors which flank the city, but fab new 60s music, pop groups and pirate radio make her want to burst out of the mire. For Andrea and her friends, England is changing and sexual and social boundaries are beginning to blur. She's going to handle the north midland gloom and her fog of misery her way. She'll get pop-star Lennon look-alike, Brendan James, and lose her virginity. But Andrea hasn't planned on being a fourteen-year-old expectant mum, or on a stepfather - and the opportunities afforded by the move south to London, where life could be fun...Award winning author Pam Mariko takes the reader on a journey through the 'dark night of the soul' to hope, balance, and bright new beginnings.
