Although I purchased it almost two years ago, I've only just now gotten around to reading it, after living in Dublin for some time. These range from references to such things as the Dart and Luas - the train and tram systems here in Dublin - to the idea of the 'land of twitching curtains,' referring to the Irish propensity for keeping tabs on their neighbors, and not necessarily in a good way. The narrative here alternates between the three main characters, allowing the reader to witness events from multiple perspectives.

Of the three characters, I liked Colm the most, and found his journey to Wales fascinating. However that may be, I found the low-key friendship between the two boys, begun when they were in primary school together, and then seemingly abandoned until circumstance brings them together again, rather moving.

All in all, a worthwhile read, one I would recommend to those looking for Irish young adult fare. AbigailAdams26 Jun 24, You must log in to edit Common Knowledge data.

Book description Ruan, Emma, and Colm are from different worlds despite living in the same city: their schools, houses, and groups of friends mark them as snobs or scobies in each other's eyes. When a terrible accident devastates Ruan s family, he must find a way of coping, with help from Emma. Meanwhile Colm goes on the run from a crime he did not commit. As the three teenagers attempt to deal with their own family crises and study for their final school exams, their lives become intertwined. A keenly perceptive account of Dublin life, "Snobs, Dogs and Scobies" is about social stereotypes, class differences, and teenage friendships.
