1970s Toxteth, and 9-year-old Sparra is running out of places to play. It's no fun at home, what with her Mam and Dad snapping at each other and Auntie Mo dishing the dirt. Along her street prowl mortal enemies Uffo and Lippo, mad Harold and his skinny wife and psycho-killer Stabber. So Sparra and Debbie make a bombed-out house on Piggy Monk Square their own special hideaway. When a policeman with a bad case of snuffles disturbs their games, he warns them to keep out. Two Scouse girls, they know better than to trust him. But suddenly he's at their mercy and they're pitched into trouble deeper than they could ever imagine.

Review quote

"A subtle but compulsively readable novel, combining bittersweet provincial nostalgia with a dark and subversive parable."
