Dirty Weekend: Swinging Sixties Book 1
1966. A weekend in Brighton. Just for fun. And then home.
But what if home is the last place you want to be?
Four young Londoners - Carol-Anne, Jeanette, Terry and Mark - head to Brighton for a weekend of seaside fun. Dancing, drinking, and a whole lot of lovin' are high on the agenda, not necessarily in that order. It's the Swinging Sixties, a time of freedom for all, so why not?
But behind the bravado lurk more insecurities than there are pebbles on Brighton beach. Each of the weekenders has a secret. Nobody is quite what they seem, especially Jeanette, whose problems run deeper than anyone could begin to imagine. When she disappears on a night out, tensions rise as her friends struggle to work out what to do.
They agree on two points: no parents, no police - where they come from, people sort out their own problems. But can Carol-Anne, Terry and Mark really handle the situation without help, or is this too big, even for them?
In the midst of the chaos, one thing is certain: after the weekend, nothing will ever be the same again.
