The summer after Grade 8, The L-Shaped Room by Lynne Reid Banks began appearing on the list.

The L-Shaped Room Lynne Reid Banks Vintage, pp, £ It is interesting to return to this classic novel, first published half a century ago.

That's a bad sign. I had a small hotel room in Skopje with bedbugs and there's little that's more discomfiting than opening your eyes at night while repositioning your body on the bed and seeing half a dozen. I first read the L Shaped Room in and went on to read the others immediately.
