Just €8.45 each
St Enda’s is no ordinary school, and Padraic Pearse is no ordinary headmaster. His pupils are inspired by his vision of freedom and an Irish Republic, and John Joe and his friend Roger see the Easter Rising as their chance to fight for Ireland’s freedom. But the two boys are horrified to learn that they are too young to take part. They disobey orders to stay away from the city centre and quickly become caught up in the dramatic events of the Rebellion. Called to be brave and resourceful beyond their years, they witness events that change their lives forever. Another dramatic blend of history and fiction from the inimitable Morgan Llywelyn.

In a review Wesley said: “I wish I could have read this when I was a boy. I loved the adventure and heroism combined with the appropriate level of realism (aka no pre-teens beating up grown men with their kung fu skills). This was just a good story. It’s nice to get a bit of Irish history in there as well. I would openly recommend this book to 10 to 13 year old boys.” He gave it 4 and 1/2 STARS

OPENING LINES as follows:
The rain taps the windowpane with cold, thin fingers as if it wants to get in.
I tap my desk with my own cold fingers because I want to get out. I don’t like school and I don’t like teachers. I want to climb trees and go fishing and never sit indoors in another classroom as long as I live.
Most of all I want to see my mother. She’s the most wonderful person in the whole world. I never say that out loud because the other boys would tease me, but it’s true.
No matter how bold I’ve been……………………….
(Simply, wonderful writing by an author that has sold 40 million+ books)
