ST Summer Roundup

Children: High days and holidays - Sunday Times - Times Online

Nicolette Jones' summer roundup in the Sunday Times includes a recommendation for Boy2Girl by Terence Blacker, just out in paperback

Terence Blacker�s sharp-witted and contemporary Boy2Girl (Macmillan �4.99) for 11+ relates what unpredictable things happen when a new American boy at an English secondary school passes himself off as a girl for a dare. Under the humorous surface it is thoughtful and revealing about identity and relationships.

I've just read Blacker's latest children's novel, Parent Swap, which among other things is a bitingly satirical take on reality TV and is also both very funny and thought-provoking.
