Day 8 - Book that reminds you of a certain place

Ulster: Conflict and Consent by Wilson, D Reminds me of Hut 6 - the damp, poorly heated portakabin on the far side of the sports field at school where I had a double A-level politics lesson on a Thursday afternoon with Mr Maloney. It even reminds me of the seat I sat in, on the right hand side of the table in between Charlotte and Petrova and opposite Colin and Duncan (for the record, Elliot, James and Tim sat on the third side of the square). Most of all, it reminds me of Mr Maloney asking if anyone knew what Sinn Fein meant and I whispered the answer and Charlotte announced to the group that I knew the answer ('Ourselves Alone'). It also reminds me of the following exchange:

Mr Maloney "How do you know that, Izzie?"
Me "I'm reading a book, A big, blue one"
Mr Maloney "What's this big, blue book called?"
Me "I have no idea."
Mr Maloney *laughs*
