Reviews of Bilgewater

    Written when mobiles were things we suspended from ceilings, 'Bilgewater' is still vibrant, moving, funny. As long as there are hearts to be broken or set pounding by a whisper and a touch, this book will be relevant. The protagonist, a bright but awkward girl at the edge of adulthood, is excruciatingly real and sympathetic. She captures that terrible period of believing there is only one point-of-view in any situation - one's own - and all the mistakes and missed opportunities that follow. All this written with delicious freshness and humour.
    A wonderful book!
