Wishlist Wednesday: The Pimlico Kid, Barry Walsh

Wishlist Wednesday is a weeklies hosted by Pen to Paper.As I have enough wishes when it comes to books I decided to join this weekly and tell you about them. I am obviously curious about the books on your wishlist too so feel free to leave a message.

The Pimlico Ki Barry Walsh cover
One boy. One street. One summer he will never forget.
It’s 1963. Billy Driscoll and his best mate, Peter ‘Rooksy’ Rooker, have the run of their street. Whether it’s ogling sexy mum, Madge, as she pegs out her washing, or avoiding local bully Griggsy, the estates and bombsites of Pimlico have plenty to fire their fertile imagination.
Billy is growing up and after years of being the puny one, he’s finally filling out. He is also taking more than a passing interest in Sarah Richards, his pretty neighbour. But he isn’t her only admirer – local heartthrob and rotten cheat, Kenneth ‘Kirk’ Douglas, likes her too – something drastic must be done if Billy is to get his girl.
When Rooksy suggests a day out with Sarah and her shy friend, Josie, it seems like the perfect summer outing. Little do they know that it will be a day of declarations and revelations; of secrets and terrifying encounters – and that it will change them all forever…

 I am curious what is happening in this book. What are the secrets and encounters. The whole setting of this story combined with the synopsis just makes me want to pick it up.

Sounds like an interesting read. I actually heard about the book before but never much. Hope it's good!

Hope you get the book soon!

Sounds interesting -- the idea of "terrifying encounters" seems out of place with the rest of the description, makes me really curious to know what will happen!

It looks intriguing, what are the "terrifying encounters"? Oh great, now I'm going to have to go buy the book this instant to find out! :) Thanks for sharing!

P.S.-- I hope you are enjoying The Pillars of the Earth, I recently read it and loved it!

I like the cover and the story about the boy and secrets & encounters reminds me a bit of The Shadow of the Wind (Daniel)
