‘The perfect pick for those missing their dose of Derry GirlsIrish Examiner

‘Entertaining, touching and savagely funny’ Sunday Times

‘Vital, bang-on, and seriously funny’ Roddy Doyle

It’s the summer of 1994, and all Maeve Murray wants is some money and good exam results so she can escape her shitty wee town in Northern Ireland.

And when she starts to notice things aren’t adding up at the factory, it seems like revealing the truth may just be her one-way ticket out of town.
