Come along and meet the local author Rebecca Skinner, who will be selling and signing copies of her Young Adult new book – Minor Perception: Summer Class Summery of the book: Do you remember what it was like to be a child in an adult’s world? It’s September 2019 and the beginning of a new year at Mimosa Primary School. Holly, Louise, Otterlie and Bertie are looking forward to being in Year Five, Summer Class, with its charismatic young teaching assistant, Mr George. None of them yet having ever heard of coronavirus. As the year unfolds, each of them must face their own personal challenges. Dysfunctional families, gangs of local predators and the usual school bullying all take their toll. Suddenly, come the spring, everybody must face an unprecedented threat. Narrated from four different viewpoints, this portrayal of everyday life for modern children is a timely reminder of how precarious childhood really can be and what a struggle it is to keep it protected.
