Product description

A tough-cookie girl meets cows (and makes a friend) love story. Real, sassy and udderly fresh from the fields. Read it if you love festivals, muddy wellies and the wind in your hair. Growing up on the embattled Mawr Estate in South Wales, all Gemma sees are burglaries, muggings, sadness and boredom. Dad is in prison and Mum’s given up hope. Gemma nearly has, too. Until, walking in the hills near her house, Gemma collides with Cowgirl – the legendary local weirdo. Six foot tall and angry; no friends except the twelve cows on her dad’s farm. Yet the two girls click somehow. And with Cowgirl’s only friends in mortal danger of the abattoir, she and Gemma have a mission on their hands… There: you always knew it. Cows – and friends – can change lives.
