Boys Don’t Cry meets Chains in this gutsy historical epic – winner of the Carnegie Medal 2015. How not to get lynched in post Civil War America? Um… don’t be a solo black girl. So Charley is dressing up as a male soldier… Charley used to be a slave. Now she’s free. But safe? That’s another matter. Her adoptive mum was raped and killed by a racist mob. Charley doesn’t want to go the same way. Then Charley hits on the perfect disguise: a soldier’s uniform. In the army, dressed as a man, she can let her guard down. Right? Did you love Apache? Well, Tanya’s latest slams through you like a dynamite blast. Forget the competition. Tough-cookie Charley is the braveheart we wish we were most like.
