Sally-Ann has never been further from home than Scarborough. She is suffocating in her parents’ house, fed up with their old-fashioned rules and bored with her job. Then Terry comes in to the library where she works to look at maps for his “trip around the world.”
‘What’s your name?’ he asks her. ‘Zita,’ she lies. But becoming Zita is not so simple.
Susan Day deftly leads you into Sally-Ann/ Zita’s life and adventures, her coming of age, discovery of life’s unpredictabilities and growing old. Her skilful depiction of the characters brings them to life and you'll miss them and wonder about them when you’ve turned the last page.
