Description

Across the Barricades is part of Joan Lingard’s ground-breaking Kevin and Sadie series, the sequel to The Twelfth Day of July. Both books are part of The Originals from Penguin – iconic, outspoken, first.

Kevin and Sadie just want to be together, but it’s not that simple. Things are bad in Belfast. Soldiers walk the streets and the city is divided. No Catholic boy and Protestant girl can go out together – not without dangerous consequences . . .

The Originals are the pioneers of fiction for young adults. From political awakening, war and unrequited love to addiction, teenage pregnancy and nuclear holocaust, The Originals confront big issues and articulate difficult truths. The collection includes: The Outsiders – S.E. Hinton, I Capture the Castle – Dodie Smith, Postcards from No Man’s Land – Aidan Chambers, After the First Death – Robert Cormier, Dear Nobody – Berlie Doherty, The Endless Steppe – Esther Hautzig, Buddy – Nigel Hinton, Across the Barricades – Joan Lingard, The Twelfth Day of July – Joan Lingard, No Turning Back – Beverley Naidoo, Z for Zachariah – Richard C. O’Brien, The Wave – Morton Rhue, The Red Pony – John Steinbeck, The Pearl – John Steinbeck, Stone Cold – Robert Swindells.
