Publisher's Summary

Dottie and Mary forged a friendship over a bag of penny sweets when they were eight years old. They've shared everything together since then. Now, at seventeen, they're both shopgirls working at Woolworths.

As they go out in the world in pursuit of love and happiness and life becomes more complicated, the simplicity of their childhood dissolves. The heady excitement of first love will consume them both, but the pain of unintentional betrayal will test their friendship.

Funny, laugh out loud, crying..

I don’t think I’ve ever loved a book so much as ‘The Girls from See Saw Lane: Book 1’ I was raised in Hastings..my mom lived during WWII in Hastings which is not far from Brighton where my Uncle still lives. That was during the ‘60’s also, but I wasn’t as old as the girls..just a mere child. The thing I’m trying to say is I could relate so much to the narrator and the words Sandy Taylor wrote. I laughed so much and at the end cried like a little girl. What a beautiful book...

Highly recommended 5⭐️plus..take a moment to listen and read the British ways of doing crazy things in the 60’s and a tragedy that befalls upon a family...
