Hurry Up and Wait

Myriad Editions, 2011

It’s more than twenty years since Sarah Ribbons last set foot inside her old high school, a crumbling comprehensive on the south coast of England.

Now, as she prepares for her school reunion, 39-year-old Sarah has to face up to the truth of what really happened back in the summer of 1986.  In her second novel Isabel Ashdown explores the treacherous territory of adolescent friendships, and traces across the decades the repercussions of a dark encounter.

‘This vivid evocation of life in 1985 is a fine second book from a writer who first won The Mail On Sunday novel competition’ – Daily Mail
