This was a pretty reasonable six part teatime drama from the beeb. Sticking closly to the book it tells the story of simon. Simons father hasnt coped with the death of his wife and is in a pit of depression. Simon gets sent to the local kids home. There he meets the tough fairground girl rose who also has her own problems.
This was a interesting programme and a good post Grange Hill vehicle for Sean Maguire (Simon) and feature a very young Lucy Speed pre Eastenders. They are well cast as the well behaved school boy and the streetwise girl.
Worth a watch if it ever gets repeated on cable
