Discovering a Comet

Sadie Jones Took Me Line Dancing, Discovering a Comet (Leaf Books, 2008)

EXCERPT:

Sadie Jones is a cowgirl. She’s my mum’s new friend, but isn’t like a mother. She’s got this thing she does with her eyes: you know she’s never changed a nappy.

My mum has taken up dancing. It’s one of her new pursuits since Dad’s affair with Brian really worked out. It’s not to meet men, she tells me. Or women, she adds, like I’d be worried about that.
