Review The Girls from See Saw Lane by Sandy Taylor

see saw lane.jpg


Brighton 1963. Mary Pickles and I walked along the street with our arms linked, looking in shop windows. We were best friends and together we were invincible.

Dottie and Mary forged a friendship over a bag of penny sweets when they were eight years old. They’ve shared everything together since then – the highs and lows of school, family dramas, hopes and dreams and now, at seventeen, they’re both shop girls, working at Woolworths.

As they go out in the world in pursuit of love and happiness, the simplicity of their childhood dissolves as life becomes more complicated. The heady excitement of first love will consume them both, but the pain of unintentional betrayal will test their friendship in ways neither of them could ever imagine

my review

Wow this book had me laughing out loud one minute and bursting into tears the next. Sandy Taylors writing was strong throughout and completely drew me into Dottie’s and Mary’s story.  I adored Sandy Taylors writing style it was so easy to read which made this book a massive page turner

I loved the setting and the descriptions of life in the 60’s I actually felt as though I  was living on See Saw Lane watching this story unfold in front of my eyes.

There are some major plot twists throughout the book which will leave you speechless and will keep you turning those pages

An unputdownable book of friendship and I cannot wait for the sequel

5 of 5 stars
