Feb. 2014 – Pigeon English, Steven Kelman (summary below)
Books to read are chosen by the group roughly every six months. We try to choose books from various genres and centuries. Have a book you think should be shared then come along and put it in the mix.
As the observant among you may have noticed we have no books to read after Pigeon English. It is therefore time to decide what we are going to read over the next six months. So raid those bookshelves and pick two books (reasonably lengthed and in print) that you think other people should read. We can then peruse the books and come to a mutual agreement (or vote if necessary) on what books we are going to read.
February 2014 – Pigeon English, Steven Kelman
Eleven-year-old Harrison Opoku, the second best runner in Year 7, races through his new life in England with his personalised trainers - the Adidas stripes drawn on with marker pen - blissfully unaware of the very real threat around him. Newly-arrived from Ghana with his mother and older sister Lydia, Harri absorbs the many strange elements of city life, from the bewildering array of Haribo sweets, to the frightening, fascinating gang of older boys from his school. But his life is changed forever when one of his friends is murdered. As the victim's nearly new football boots hang in tribute on railings behind fluorescent tape and a police appeal draws only silence, Harri decides to act, unwittingly endangering the fragile web his mother has spun around her family to keep them safe.
