Good luck
Gritty, real and often proper laugh out loud.
Absolutely loved this book - can't wait for the sequel
Wonderful, funny, sad and sinewy novel about a family trying to hold on to their home and their dignity in Britain today.
Great characterisation. Lucid and convincing style. Empathic.
Simply the best book I've read this year.
Feisty, funny, three dimensional This is a page turner, completely real, yet playful I wouldn't have thought I would be engaged with the subject matter but it is such a good read I couldn't put it down (and we had visitors...)!!
