Thirteen-year-old Lizzie McCallum is a Protestant living in Northern Ireland. She has seen her fair share of the troubles, and she is used to being taunted by the boys from the local Catholic school. Lizzie's family hates Catholics, especially since Uncle Jim was killed. On an ordinary Saturday in August, 1998, Lizzie's world is blown apart when she finds herself at the centre of a tragic bombing incident on the high street. Lizzie has always thought she was on the right side, but she finds out that bombs do not discriminate - they kill innocent people - from both sides.
