Product description

A city divided by the Easter Rising. A boy with split loyalties. Can Jimmy cross battle-scarred Dublin? It’s 1916. Europe is at war. From the poverty of the Dublin slums, twelve-year-old Jimmy Conway thinks it’s all glorious. He worships the British Army. His own dad is away fighting. But then conflict strikes Dublin. Rebels seize the General Post Office, calling for a free Ireland. Suddenly Jimmy doesn’t know which side he’s on. His uncle is one of the rebels, standing against the English. But in Jimmy’s heart, he’s still loyal to his dad. And now he must cross the war zone – dodging rebel bullets and army patrols…
