Sadie is Protestant, Kevin is Catholic - and on the tense streets of Belfast their lives collide. It starts with a dare - kids fooling around - but soon becomes something dangerous. Getting to know Sadie Jackson will change Kevin's life forever. But will the world around them change too? The first of Joan Lingard's ground-breaking Kevin and Sadie books.
Living in Belfast with the twin problems of prejudice and violence. (‘Prod') Sadie and (‘Mick') Kevin are friends despite the barricades and the slogan daubed walls. Both are determined to break away from their entrenched families and find some middle ground. Funny but with serious overtones.
