The Tightrope Walkers
It's the late 1960s, and the times are definitely changing in this powerfully realistic tale from award-winning author Almond (The True Tale of the Monster Billy Dean, 2014). Dominic Hall is coming of age in the shadow of northern England's shipyards and he dreams of one day becoming a writer. He's torn between the freedom he feels with the artistic, tightrope-walking girl next door, Holly and the brutal charms of Vincent, a bully who shares Dominic's blue-collar background and awakens something wild and reckless in him. His friends draw Dominic in opposite directions as he negotiates a difficult, sometimes dangerous world.
