The Great Harlequin Grim
By Gareth Thompson
When his parents split up, Glenn and his dad move to a small village where they are definitely regarded as outsiders, and therefore suspect. His dad won’t talk to him, and his mum has disappeared. He’s quite miserable until he meets a bewitching girl, and the local boy giant, Harlequin.
Harlequin lives rough, has various disabilities, but he and Glenn become good friends. However tragedy awaits……………..
This is a really good story – much more realistic than many around at the moment. Worth a try.
