The Pavee and the Buffer Girl, Paperback / softback Book

The Pavee and the Buffer Girl Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Emma Shoard

Paperback / softback

Description

Jim and his family have halted by Dundray and the education people have been round mouthing the law.

In school the Traveller kids suffer at the hands of teachers and other pupils alike, called 'tinker-stinkers', 'dirty gyps' and worse.

Then the punches start. The only friendly face is Kit, a settled girl who takes Jim under her wing and teaches him to read in the great cathedral chamber of the cave below the town.

With Kit and the reading, Jim seems to have found a way to exist in Dundray, but everyday prejudice and a shocking act of violence see his life uprooted once again.
