Little Bits of Sky
A Beautiful, Moving, Real Book
Ira and her little brother Zac are 'care kids' - always being shuffled from one home to another, never quite belonging. When they end up at Skilly House, a... READ MORE
Rachel Meier at Canterbury Rose Lane


It's 1987 and Ira and Zac are being uprooted once again, this time to Skilly House, a home for social care children. Their lives over the next few years are beautifully realised amongst the antipathy of the authorities, the drama of the poll tax riots and the moments of peace and hope Ira finds at Skilly and further afield. This is memorable and moving tale about growing up, making friends and finding a home.

"This remarkable debut novel reads as if written by an experienced children's author at the height of her powers" - The Sunday Times
