The Stars In The Bright Sky by Alan Warner
This book is excellent and I very much enjoyed it. It is about a group of young Scottish girls, who have known each other since school days, going on a summer holiday with an English girl who knows one of them from university. It is excellently written, funny and frighteningly accurate. The characters are very realistic and well drawn and the plot is perfectly timed. It is a real shame that this didn't make it onto the short list as it is definitely one of my favourites from the long list. I would recommend it to anybody as this is one of those books which contains some really meaningful messages but which you can read for entertainment. I was slightly disappointed to finish this book and leave these girls' world behind. Definitely recommended.
