Dirty Weekend

by: Deirdre Palmer

1966.

Four seventeen and eighteen year-olds from South London – Carol-Anne, Jeanette, Terry, and Mark – head to Brighton, intent on a weekend of seaside fun. Dancing, drinking, and sex are high on the agenda, and not necessarily in that order.

It’s the Swinging Sixties, and the world is changing fast. An exciting time, but a confusing one, too. Freedom is all very well, but brings with it endless worries and complications. Each of the teenagers has a secret; nobody is quite what they seem.
Especially Jeanette.

When she disappears on a night out, tensions begin to rise as the others struggle to work out what to do. They agree on two points: no parents, and no police.

But can they really handle the situation on their own?

In the midst of the chaos, one thing is certain: after the weekend, nothing will ever be the same again.

Meet the Author

United Kingdom
Deirdre lives in Brighton, on the south coast of England, the town where she was born.   Brighton and the surrounding Sussex countryside are a great source of inspiration for her novels. At the age of nine, having learned the word ‘author’ and liking the sound of it, she banged out Enid Blyton rip-offs on an old typewriter.  The writerly ambition went into hibernation after that, but it was always there, through life in general and a career in university administration, at which point it emerged pretty much unscathed and clamouring for attention. Deirdre is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, having ‘graduated’ from the association’s New Writers’ Scheme on publication of her first novel, Remarkable Things. She was twice a major prize-winner in the Mail on Sunday Novel Competition.  As well as novels, she enjoys writing short stories and is published by D C Thomson in The People’s Friend magazine.
