Friendly Fire

by Patrick Gale
£7.99   paperback  Harper Collins (2006)

Friendly Fire by Patrick Gale Fourten-year-old Sophie has grown up in institutions, so she is well trained to survive life as a 'Daughter' in an ancient boarding school.
 
But nothing can prepare her for meeting, and falling for, Lucas. Wealthy, Jewish and an exotic contrast to the boys she has grown up with, he draws her into a tangle of forbidden pursuits which seem doomed to end in discovery and disgrace.
 
Sophie's other love is knowledge; she succumbs to the glamour of learning and life at the old school. There are lessons she must learn in the outside world, however, lessons about class, families, mother-love and the havoc they can wreck...

"Utterly compelling. Sad and funny with the matchlessly fine prose that marks Patrick Gale out as such a superb writer."
(Stephen Fry)
