IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO GROW UP...
This is the story of
SCOTT, who finds his belongings outside in a bin bag one day and realises he may have made a Big Mistake
GAIL, who wishes her husband were under guarantee so she could send him back and get a refund
NAT, who discovers that growing up isn't all it's cracked up to be
ROSIE, who just wants her Dad back - or if not, then at least some new glitter nail polish.
Four lives, one story: love, loss and learning to be a grown-up.
Very funny...written with sympathy and humour
This book is a tour de force
Mature, sensitive and tear-teasing
Touching, hilarious and disarmingly accurate
The story is told through the eyes of all four members of the family, and Calman cleverly contrasts the different voices, sending an ache of pathos through the accounts of the two children, whose lives have been turned upside down by forces beyond their control...Funny, traumatic and with the searing sting of truth, this is a moving novel about the realignment of a family
