Gerry Quinn knows what it's like to be hungry and poor. So when looting breaks out during the 1916 Rising, he doesn't hesitate to join in.

Months later Gerry and his friends Emer and Jack piece together their lives in the aftermath of the Easter Rebellion. But just when Gerry's luck appears to be picking up, disaster strikes: his crime is about to be revealed.

Desperate to avoid being sent to a brutal reformatory school, Gerry turns to Emer and Jack for help. But his friends have their own secret to keep from the Rising, and helping Gerry is fraught with danger.

Does one good turn always deserve another? And if it does, how much must a friend risk to pay back a debt?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Brian Gallagher excels at giving you real compassion and understanding for the characters in a very short time. The three friends on whom the story focuses, Gerry, Emer and Jack all have their own opinions and alliances when it comes to The Rising and what is right for Dublin. Learning about their individual experiences really gives depth to the story and helps give a greater understanding of what life was like for the people of Dublin during this tumultuous time in Ireland's history. One Good Turn is a timely and fitting book, sure to ignite a greater interest in our nation's history with younger readers
