Multitudes

by Lucy Caldwell

Belfast children and young people coping indomitably with all kinds of stuff like bereavement, prejudice and sex in this great collection of stories. My favourite is the tale of transgender Alan (Through the Wardrobe) and I hope that the extract is typical of the spirit of the book.

Extract

But hold the image of yourself in the gold dress, in front of the wardrobe, in your mind's eye: because you'll need it; and because it will become a sort of talisman; and because no matter what it takes and no matter how long it takes you'll come through.
