NOMINATED FOR THE PRESTIGIOUS 201 1 IMPAC DUBLIN LITERARY AWARD!
Martina does the unthinkable: a poor girl from the inner-city gains entry into one of the most prestigious high schools in the country. Milverton High, situated on a hill with its picturesque surroundings, students from the upper echelons of society and teachers who did not necessarily understand, contrasts with the poverty, hunger and family problems which Martina encounters. She is not about to succumb to ridicule, rejection and poverty. Milverton, here she comes, defying all the odds!
