Where do you go, Birdy Jones?
Eleven-year-old Birdy has a lot of changes going on in her life. She and her father, sister and stepmother (who is expecting a baby) are moving house which means she will no longer be able to help her grandfather with his pigeons and she’s transferring to secondary school. All this leads her to search for who she really is, something she can only confide to her school friend Manjit and the mysterious Dogger. Set in Leeds, modern Yorkshire dialect is well integrated within the way Birdy’s story is told.
