An eight-year-old girl and her granpa are on the run When me and Granpa watched James Bond films, he told me not to be scared because people didnt have guns like that in Scotland. That mustve been why the robbers used hammers. Orphaned Mary lives with her granpa, but after he is mixed up in a robbery at the bookies where he works, they flee to the Isle of Skye. Gradually, Mary realises that her granpa is involved. And the robbers are coming after himand their money. Marys quirky outlook on life, loss, and her love of all things Elvis, will capture your heart. Full of witty Scots banter, Marys the Name will have you reaching for the hankies, first with laughter, then with tears. Heart-warming and heart-breaking, this darkly comic debut is from a fresh voice set to become Scotlands answer to Roddy Doyle.
