It's August 1959 and it's blackberry picking time. 'Lollipop' and 'Living Doll' blare out from the juke box: boys wear natty suits, their hair slicked back in Elvis quiffs; girls are dressed in puffed out skirts - all of them with one thing on their minds ... How far do we go to keep a promise?
A back street stabbing changes the lives of five young people forever and promises prove difficult to keep.
Blackberry Promises by Jan Moran Neil is an evocative exploration of teenage sexuality set in an era which invented the teenager.
Commended in the Words for the Wounded Novel Competition.
