Sal is the tale of two half-sisters, Sal and Peppa, who run away to the Galloway Forest to escape their troubled home. Beautifully told in the older girl’s voice, it’s a story of physical and mental survival, as well as sisterly love. Journalist turned teacher Mick Kitson talks about why, fed up with the curriculum, he set out to write something he would want to teach, and how he found inspiration in south-west Scotland. [121]
