I love this series so much, it's just so gripping. I read the first 3 stories in a week. I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone (young or old) that is looking for something exciting, adventurous and (slighty) romantic.

This series is a favorite of mine, and now I have passed it on to my children, who also love it.

It's about kids, written for kids (early teens), but good for anyone interested in understanding Northern Ireland during the "troubles". Joan Lingard writes as one who grew up in Belfast. Her characters are authentic natives from both sides of the divide, kids, their parents, their neighbours, streets lined with terrace houses. Going by the copyright date, it's the 1960s, probably a few years before the setting of Gerald Seymour's Harry's Game (which I've also reviewed), and before Bloody Sunday. Neither the IRA nor any Protestant paramilitaries figure in the story, only the two neighbourhoods, probably somewhere in West Belfast. It's enough that it takes place during the few days leading up to the most controversial date in the Irish calendar -- hence, the title.

On the Protestant side, Sadie and her brother, Tommy, are getting ready for the big day, practicing to march in the parade, and decorating their street. Sadie is the feisty fireball, the one who rallies the neighbourhood kids to action, sometimes getting into a spot of trouble. Over on the Catholic side, live Keven and his sister Brede. Keven gets restless when things are too quiet, which things are on their side of the divide. Brede prefers to read her books and stay out of trouble.

The ball gets rolling as Keven and his friend Brian decide to sneak into the Protestant neighbourhood in middle of the night, and deface a mural of "King Billy" -- as William of Orange is fondly called by the "Prods". Sadie catches them in the act, and, being the sprinter that she is, catches up with him and tackles him to the ground; their first meeting. After that, there's the revenge attack, where Sadie and Keven meet again. So, it goes on, tit-for-tat. Things get out of hand, but somewhere along the way, someone plants the seed -- a cup of tea, actually -- that germinates and blossoms when the situation is at its most intense, and something happens that no one could have predicted.

Joan Lingard brings it all together in a believable way. It's not forced, it's not goody-goody "let's-be-friends"; it's people with a history of hatred, but somehow with the right mixture, they're forced to see one-another's humanity.

It's the first in the series of "Keven and Sadie" books. I might read another one...

This is a book for young teenagers, set against the backdrop of Northern Ireland just before the outbreak of the Troubles.

The plot is simple: a feisty Catholic boy and a feisty Protestant girl, living in inner-city Belfast neighbourhoods separated only by a main road, lead alternate mischief-making expeditions into each other's territory until things get out of hand and a sacrifice, Romeo and Juliet style, is required to bring the sides back to their senses. The characterization is a bit perfunctory (Kevin is feisty; Sadie, on the other hand, is feisty) but the setting, leading up to the Twelfth, is well drawn. The book was written in 1970 and is unobtrusively matter-of-fact about being poor at the time: no-one has a phone, cars break down all the time, and chip pan fires play a prominent role. The police are not reacted to in an openly sectarian way, as you imagine they would have been if the book had been written only a few years later, but it's noticeable that the Catholic parents are spoiling for a fight with them more than the Protestant parents are. Missing from the book's even-handedness is any strong sense of the real asymmetry of rhetoric that you experience on the ground (Catholics are inferior, Protestants are oppressive): actions on one side are almost exactly mirrored on the other, and when the symmetry is broken it's done against type (the Catholic girl is painstaking, the Protestant girl is careless). The best parts are the set pieces: a trip to the zoo, a trip to the beach, and especially the climactic scene where, without it ever having been explicitly stated, everyone becomes aware that a big fight's coming up.
