There was a time when contemporary Irish fiction for young adults was thin on the ground.
Not so any more, says Irish author Natasha Mac a’Bháird. “I was always disappointed when I was younger that there were so few books set in Ireland. But I love reading teenage fiction now. You get to read about the Leaving Cert instead of high school or A Levels.”
Natasha’s latest book, her first for teenagers, is Missing Ellen, and it tells the story of the friendship between Maggie and Ellen.
