Tell Mrs Poole I'm Sorry (by Kathleen Rowntree)

I hadn't previously come across Kathleen Rowntree, but was lent this book by a friend.

'Tell Mrs Poole I'm Sorry' is the story of three eleven-year-old girls from very different backgrounds. They become close friends, and discover together the joys and pains of growing up.

As the girls continue to need each other as adults, the past is revealed in cleverly written flashbacks, gradually making more sense. Satisfying ending, although some secrets are still kept.

Very enjoyable, and it sparked my enthusiasm to find more books by this author.
