A coming-of-age story with a big difference.

 

In the summer of 1957, the Maddox family move ten miles from a council estate in Wastock to a larger house in the country where each of the four teenagers can, at last, have their own bedroom. Brackenbridge is the epitome of an English village, where gardens are kept immaculate, lawns mown to within a millimetre of life, and the very last thing some of the prim and proper natives desire is a family of councilites moving in.

Jenny, Jake, Pete and Matt, the four youngsters, fall foul of the locals the first day, and from there things go downhill.

Not all the villagers are bad, though, and the boys become friends with some New Road lads whose own families were once targeted, but what they learn from them about the old fogies of Spring Lane is shocking.

Matt makes friends with the vicar's son, Tommy, and it's the start of changing the village.

 

If you were told by someone who lived through the fifties that it was a time of sexual innocence in the young, you might want to ask yourself what it is they are ashamed of and wish to hide. It wasn't like that everywhere.
