In this beautiful, epic coming-of-age novel, an old tale is rewoven as a stunning YA story by well-known Irish author/illustrator Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick. I kept clear of Dog Cullen.

"so vivid, evocative and stifling in places"

On Midnight Beach is so vivid, evocative and stifling in places, you can almost smell the overpowering scents of the Atlantic Ocean, fish scales, diesel, whipped vanilla ice cream, corned beef, heated tarmac, spilt cold lager and talcum powder to mask the excessive perspiration.
