A Referendum on Debra & Other Planets

Megan Hastings

Sasha, Mike and shy young Jacob have a new home with a garden. Mike plants a rose, Times Past. Sasha meets Magda and Stan, and Jacob is soon firm friends with their sons, especially Marcin. The boys delight in playing planet and alien games. There's another apparently welcoming neighbour, Debra, who makes cakes, offers help to the frazzled young parents and talks, sometimes strangely. All is well, and Times Past and new flourish. Until shortly after 23 June 2016, when paradise is interrupted by Debra's alien behaviour, and Times Past withers. A disarmingly simple and honestly told tale about two young families brought together by their children, then bound by a borderless loyalty and limitless optimism.
