Waterstones Says

Notes in the margins of a library book spark a romance between two teenage boys in this powerful coming-of-age and coming-out story full of heart and courage.

Longlisted for the Yoto Carnegie Medal for Writing 2024

In the margins of a book's pages, sparks fly as a teenage romance begins.

But in this time and place, sparks like these can only ignite trouble. It's 1994 and thanks to Section 28, there can be no mention of gay relationships in UK schools.

When a kind librarian leads Jamie to a disguised novel in the library that reflects his own confused feelings towards boys, Jamie sees that he's not the only one who has checked the book out.

Will Jamie and this mystery boy have the courage to meet - and if they do, what will it take to hold on to each other?

From 1988 to 2003, Section 28 dictated that local authorities could not “promote homosexuality or publish material … promoting homosexuality.” The year is 1994, and from the kind hands of a school librarian, Jamie has... More
