Loved this book from the first word to the last and could hardly bear to put it down as it was so engrossing! The story of two eight year old girls, Mary and Dottie in 60's Brighton, their very special friendship which even survived a spectacular betrayal. I loved everything - the writing, the descriptions of Brighton and life during the exciting 1960's, but most of all loved the characters for just being humans you could relate to. Please let there be a sequel! After reading this wonderful book I am nervous about starting another in case I can't get into it!
