One Good Turn

« Back

Written by: Brian Gallagher
Publisher: The O'Brien Press

Gerry Quinn knows what it’s like to be hungry and poor. So when looting breaks out during the 1916 Rising, he doesn’t hesitate to join in. 

Months later Gerry and his friends Emer and Jack piece together their lives in the aftermath of the Easter Rebellion. But just when Gerry’s luck appears to be picking up, disaster strikes: his crime is about to be revealed. 

Desperate to avoid being sent to a brutal reformatory school, Gerry turns to Emer and Jack for help.  But his friends have their own secret to keep from the Rising, and helping Gerry is fraught with danger.  

Does one good turn always deserve another? And if it does, how much must a friend risk to pay back a debt?
