The Twelfth Day of July by Joan Lingard

The first chapter takes place in a Protestant street. Tommy and Sadie Jackson are already looking forward to the 12th day of July which is a Protestant celebration day.

Meanwhile, Catholic Kevin McCoy is out causing trouble in the Protestant part of town.

What will happen when Sadie and Kevin meet? Can they become friends when everyone else in Northern Ireland is so full of hatred against the other religion?
