GONG DONKEYS

By Richard Cameron Wed 3 Nov - Sat 11 Dec, 2004

School's out, and David has been sent to spend the holidays with his Aunt Deelie, Uncle Robert and cousin Charlene in the rough part of town.

It's a summer of stories; In the shed, Uncle Robert prepares to impress the local history society with his revelations about Charles Dickens in Doncaster; On the allotment, Charlene acts out her favourite soaps; Even Gobbo and Wink, Charlene's non-too-bright conspirators, have rich fantasy lives brimming with the thrills and importance their real lives lack. But when a child goes missing, accusations are thrown at David's new friends, and the line between fact and fiction becomes dangerously blurred?
