Part coming of age, part modern day love story.
Doogie Chambers is in love with Netta Wilde.
No one knows him, no one gets him, like she does.
He thinks she’s Debbie Harry crossed with Siouxsie Sioux. She thinks he’s Heathcliff.
If it was just the two of them, everything would be fine. The trouble is, being with her unlocks the stuff he usually tries not to think about. Stuff like his need to belong. Stuff that makes him do stupid things that can only end badly.
When the inevitable happens, Doogie assumes he’ll never see her again. Then, sixteen years later, she’s back in Manchester. Still Netta, but different. Married with kids and a whole heap of emotional baggage.
If he had any sense, he’d stay well away. But when it comes to Netta Wilde, common sense doesn’t apply.
