The Big J

An evocative, humorous and often poignant rites of passage novel about a 17 year old boy Robbie Strachan growing up in a quaint tourist town on the red sandstone rim of Scotland’s north-east coast. Like most of his pals, Robbie is desperate to leave to go to College but is in awe of the mysterious and charismatic 19 year old incomer The Big J and a witness to the terrible tragedy that unfolds before summer is over.

“Beautifully drawn… compels the reader” Eileen Ramsay
