Carry Me Down

by M J Hyland

Wonderful depiction of family relationships seen through the eyes of an eleven year old boy. Extremely funny at times but also very dark and disturbing.

Extract

I sit up till late reading the library book, The Truth about Lie Detection, and with a new pen and a new exercise book I start writing about lies and the way people behave when they lie. I call the book The Gol of Seil and I write about my father's lie and about my grandmother's lie and then about my mother's strange reaction to the truth.
