This in the first in an occasional series of Piper Gates favourite things. Gregory's Girl is possibly the best film ever; to go into its genius would take longer than 12 elephants to explain. The influence on this series stems from reading "Lord of the Flies" at school and being facinated by the fact that there were variant covers, memory now suggests that I was handed the book with a different cover every week. Deciding to take this further it was decided to make an occasional series of novels done in this style with the subject being a favourite of mine. Gregory's Girl has been released as a novel but the cover doesn't do justice to the subject matter, hopefully this interpretation does it proud.
