    One thought on “The Twelfth Day of July: A Kevin and Sadie Story”

    1. I love this series now just as much as I did 30 years ago. What makes me sad is that hatred and bigotry over religion is just as topical now as it was then.So watching Kevin and Sadie break boundaries gladdens my heart. They were my second relationship that I shipped hard (Anne and Gilbert were first) and their story sucks me and makes me feel all the tender thoughts. Which is a lovely antidote to the gritty, violence filled world they live in.Now to ransack my house to find the rest as the seri [...]

    2. It's about kids, written for kids (early teens), but good for anyone interested in understanding Northern Ireland during the "troubles". Joan Lingard writes as one who grew up in Belfast. Her characters are authentic natives from both sides of the divide, kids, their parents, their neighbours, streets lined with terrace houses. Going by the copyright date, it's the 1960s, probably a few years before the setting of Gerald Seymour's Harry's Game (which I've also reviewed), and before Bloody Sunday [...]

    3. This novel really moved me. I first read it as a 13 year old, and it's still in my main bookshelf. The romance between Kevin and Sadie led me to investigations of Catholicism and wider Protestantism than my family's Anglican background. I'm a sucker for hard fought love set against violent backdrops The first three Kevin and Sadie novels were intensely memorable. They got a bit dreary and bleak after their escape to grey old England. But the story inspired me to a lifelong interest in Ireland, i [...]

    4. It can be very risky rereading a book you remember from your childhood. I've been rereading my Diana Wynne Jones books regularly for years, and I know they can cope with the passage of time because they are mostly set out of time. But it was a bit of a risk to reread what I remembered as a shocking, gripping, highly contemporary, highly political book which I first read in the 1970s. But I'm really glad I did! The Twelfth Day of July is about the political and religious situation in Northern Ire [...]

    5. a fascinating insight into the Troubles in Northern Ireland, written at the time when it was still happening. 'The Twelfth Day of July' tells the story of the conflict from the point of view of two teenagers - Kevin, a Catholic, and Sadie, a Protestant. Both are fiercely loyal to their respective sides, and engage in raids/attacks on the other side - graffiti, house breaking, and eventually violence. As much as the book is about the larger scale conflict between the two religious groups, it's al [...]

    6. I read this when I was 12 years old My first set text for high school.I was never much of a reader in my childhood years. Whenever I read, I would immediately lose interest. I guess I just hadn't found the power of text, or seem to even understand what books were trying to say to me.But this book was somehow the first book I managed to finish reading and really enjoy it. Yes, it was a school text set for purposes for education. But I found myself visiting my new high school library and borrowing [...]

    7. It's been quite a few years since I first encountered Kevin and Sadie. This book was written early in 'The Troubles' and I was reading these books as they were coming to an end. Their story did have an impact on me in my early teens. Often it can be quite disappointing to revisit childhood books - they sometimes just don't live up to our memories of them but rereading this as an adult I still think it is brilliant. It's well written and manages to cope with a tricky subject matter fanstically. T [...]

    8. Like many other teens, I was captivated by this five book series about a Catholic boy and Protestant girl in Belfast who fall in love, thus upsetting their families.Lingard's website describes the book thus:It all began with a dare. The idea of sneaking into the Protestant area to daub slogans under the mural of King Billy seems thrilling and exciting to Kevin and his Catholic friends. But feelings run high in Belfast and in the end paint-splashing turns into something far more dangerous. The on [...]

    9. I really enjoyed this book and I thought it was a very different type of book that I would read but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would like if it was a bit longer but other than that I loved it. I would recommend this book!!

    10. Part 1This is more of a joint book review, between this book and Breakfast On Pluto, by Patrick McCabeTwice the recommendation!? :-)In class we have read THE TWELFTH DAY OF JULY, a book that we have also been keeping a Reader’s Journal on. In addition, we have been reading a book of our choice as part of our book club, as part of this I have been reading BREAKFAST ON PLUTOE TWELFTH OF JULY is a book written by Joan Lingard and is set in Belfast; it follows the conflict between two neighbouring [...]

    11. I haven't read this book in years and so perhaps my review is a little out of date BUT it is a novel that has a strong place in my heart. I read it when I was young and it was my first 'love story'. The fact it touches on the troubles of Ireland is an added bonus as this is something that has always been of interest to me. Sadie is an excellent character and it's interesting to watch her change views, opinions etc. during the course of the book.I recently purchased the series in a 'all-in-one bo [...]

    12. Read this in 2014 as a class study novel. Very interesting andthis is totally irrevelant, but I used to ship Kevin and Sadie /// >v< ///such a profound story. This is the book that still got me saying "eejit" sometimes. I remember that I also read the second book, but was disappointed it wasn't as good as this. It could do well as a standalone really, but then there's like 4 more books O_o``*Sidenote: there's book cover not seen here that I liked. It's green at the borders and has two old [...]

    13. I ran across this at the Ulster Museum in Belfast and found a copy through interlibrary loan. Its handling of the conflict is superficial, which is unsurprising in a book for teens (and one written nearly 50 years ago, so it reads much younger), but it's a fascinating look into daily life in Belfast in the 1960s. The extreme latitude the kids have seems a little far-fetched even for the time, and some incidents that at least later in the Troubles would be taken very seriously are brushed off, bu [...]

    14. *Still working on.*I sort of think that anyone who's trying to write a story about star-crossed lovers seriously needs to read these books. This is how it's done. I know Kevin and Sadie aren't together in this first book, but it's a part of the story of their romance, which is practical and not too lovey-dovey while remaining realistic and touching. The series shows the realities of loving someone from a group you've been taught to hate all your life, the self-doubt, the distrust, the clashes. T [...]

    15. I read this book in primary school and felt nostalgic enough to give it another go. It focuses on the Protestant/Catholic divide in Northern Ireland through the eyes of four teenagers.Well worth a read.

    16. I just really love this book and series. I last read it more than five years ago, and I loved it then, and I still love it now. It's about a very serious and sad topic while also being lighthearted in many ways. Also I'd forgotten how short it was. It took me less than an hour.

    17. I'd been looking forward to reading this book for a while and the negative rating reflects my disappointment.While this book was good in several respects (it was short, was factual, etc.) it also had downfalls which for me, unfortunately, were a bit more prominent than it's good aspects.1. Cutting to the chase, I didn't like the low-key sexism. Of course, I take into consideration that it was written in the 70s. And honestly, I don't mind it that much, but a couple of things just got on my nerve [...]

    18. Part Two(see F23 for part one :-)Personally, I preferred BREAKFAST ON PLUTO. Although, both of these books don’t fall in to the range of books that I would normally read. I normally read thrillers or crime fiction. However, once I got into both of the books I did enjoy them; as a result I think that I might try to source some more of Patrick McCabe’s books. To be completely honest, to start off with, I did find THE TWELFTH DAY OF JULY quite dull. Nonetheless, I did try to follow it in class [...]

    19. I read another book in the series when I was a teenager (Into Exile), so I thought I'd read the entire series now. I like Joan Lingard's books, including the Kevin and Sadie series. I like how she provides context and explanation for the different sides, the history, and so on. It helps me, as an English person, gain a little more understanding.

    20. Joan Lingardin "Heinäkuun kahdestoista" (Otava, 1974) on lapsille ja nuorille suunnattu romaani, jossa käsitellään Pohjois-Irlannin konfliktia alle viisitoistavuotiaiden lasten ja nuorten näkökulmasta. Se on samalla Kevinista ja Sadiesta kertovan viisiosaisen romaanisarjan ensimmäinen osa, joskin suomeksi kyseistä sarjaa julkaistiin vain kaksi kolme osaa.Tarina on itsessään melko perinteinen: katolinen ja protestanttinen tyttö tapaavat Boynen taistelun vuosipäivää edeltävän orani [...]

    21. I read this series in 1980 so it was a lovely trip down memory lane reading this first Kevin and Sadie book with my 11 year old daughter. She asked a lot of questions I don't think I was asking when I read it at her age not sure whether this was because I remember watching footage of Belfast on tv and was aware of the issues or whether growing up in Australia I was oblivious and just took the book at face value with no idea where it was set or what was going on. Most likely the latter. I hope he [...]

    22. I started reading this because it was for a school project. I had to choose between a few books, and boy did I like the one I chose! The book was "Across the Barricades", the second book of this historical fiction series. If you enjoy history and romance, and wants to get an insight of the tension between the protestants and catholics in Belfast back in the days, this is definitely something you will like! Through the series you'll live through Kevin and Sadie's eyes, a catholic and a protestant [...]

    23. I never heard of the national holiday the Protestants in Northern Ireland cherish. But it's interesting to learn what led to The Troubles between Protestants and Catholics. I'm always curious when it comes to History. Writing a child book with The Troubles is a very good way to make young people understand how young people grow up with anger and hatred instead of finding a solution in living together in peace. I'm happy that Northern Ireland is in peace now but I hope that someday there's only O [...]

    24. The twelfth day of July is an important date in the Irish Protestant calendar and teenage Sadie and her community are preparing for the celebrations when for a bit of fun a young Catholic lad, Kevin, sneaks over and writes anti Protestant slogans on a wall near Sadie's house. This starts a series of tit for tat reprisals and someone ends up getting hurt.Set in the 1970s the book takes a look at the troubles in Ireland in an impartial way. It is the first in a series of books that Kevin and Sadie [...]

    25. Admittedly I read this book after Across the Barricades when it is in fact the first book in the Kevin and Sadie story. Again this book addresses the overall situation with appropriate subtly and consideration without condoning or promoting the beliefs or behaviour that is a principle part of the story.

    26. This book, depicting teenagers from both sides of the religious divide in the week leading up to "The Twelfth", was published in 1970. Much of the underlying tension is familiar today, so I'm not sure just how much the political climate in Northern Ireland has changed since then, despite our fragile peace. This is a really enjoyable and topical read.

    27. I remember reading this one when I was in Secondary school and it made an impression, now too many years later it has been great to revisit.I love Sadie, her defiance and fight about every thing in her live. I love that the story is set in conflicted Northern Ireland- it takes me back to a time when I was younger.It's a nostalgic thing!

    28. I had to read this at school - many years ago now - so I don't remember much about it. I remember I enjoyed it. I've never forgotten the book so it must have made an impression on me. I think it was a quite realistic look at life in Northern Ireland back in the day. Not that the country seems that much different today.

    29. The interactions of Protestants and Catholics in Belfast around the 12th of July. Again quite enjoyable. However, Joan's books are aimed at a younger audience than me, and for both of them I think, I would have enjoyed them more if I'd read them as an early teen and now reread them, so I had the nostalgic bonus to 'boost' them.

    30. My hope was to find a book that I could include in my course War and Genocide in Children's Literature to talk about the conflict between Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland. While this book touches on the conflict on a personal level, it doesn't provide much context for further understanding on a broad level. It's a good book, and the first book in a series.
