'I think there's still a bit of a stigma around it': Ross Sayers on why his next book will be in 'full Scots'
CommonSpace book reviewer Chiara Bullen talks to Scottish fiction writer Ross Sayers about his new book Sonny and Me, and why he thinks “the more we see Scots in books the better”
WITH a glorious, rainbow slushie on the cover of Ross Sayers’ latest book Sonny and Me, this smasher is sure to brighten up the typical dreary Scottish summer. Picking up the Scottish Book Trust’s ‘Book of the Month’ in June, Sonny and Me is a Young Adult (YA) tale about two boys who discover a murder mystery at their Stirling high school – and it’s absolutely class.
