Nicking Time, Paperback


The boys are planning a big summer. When they're not hanging out in their den, running the streets, playing fitba or re-enacting battles, they're planning to break into the old Hampden Park stadium -- is there enough time for it all?

Midge's pals are cool -- Bru's ginger; Skooshie's crazy; Hector's brave and Lemur, well, there's something weird about Lemur.

He knows too much. Like, he tells them a ghost story about two tragic deaths that happened over a hundred years ago.

When did Lemur learn so much about the past? T. Traynor brilliantly recreates the excitement of a boys-only summer in this original adventure set in the amazingly evoked Glasgow's Southside of the late 1970s.

Winner of the 2012 Kelpies Prize.
