This is similar to a couple of others I've read. Like Inversions by Iain M Banks it has two storylines, but unlike that book they are more linked and it has a satisfying ending. Like The World According to Bertie the blurb mentions a plot point which isn't key, but is picked out because it stands out more than others in a rambling storyline. It's set in a village near where I live, which makes it more interesting. Kitty Aldridge has managed to capture a good sense of place and time as well as the lives of children. I enjoyed it. ( )
