The Twelfth Day of July is first of Joan Lingard's influential Kevin and Sadie books, set in Belfast during the Troubles. It is one of The Originals from Penguin - iconic, outspoken, first.

It starts with a dare - kids fooling around - but soon becomes something dangerous.

Getting to know Sadie Jackson will change Kevin's life forever.
