Why would middle class adults think it likely that working class children were innocent, when there was nobody else present, and no-one else with any motive?
To me, the only bit of the book that felt unreal was this exchange...
"You cast of that boat?" said Bill's father to his son.
"No," said Bill. "We didn't. None of us"
"You hear that," said Bill's father, turning to his friends. "Bill never tell me a lie in his life."
...or perhaps I was just a very untruthful child!
