Product description

"They don't seem to understand, don't seem to grasp that we are not just ordinary children. We Are Gonks, a proud and noble tribe. We have our own rules, our own honour, our own song that no-one can remember the words to. They can't boss us around like that". Fifteen-year-old Morag Narmo really doesn't want to go to school any more. She and her siblings would rather feed their heads into the waste-disposal than "do the academical" . So they are all stunned when their parents whisk them out of school and embark on a home-schooling experiment. But with five children, two unruly pets and some extremely eccentric attitudes, the educational experiment soon descends into chaos...Witty, razor-sharp and laugh-out-loud funny, The Chronicles of Narmo shows us how before Caitlin Moran knew How to be a Woman, she had to find out How to be A Girl.

Author information

Caitlin Moran is an award-winning columnist, interviewer and critic for The Times, as well as the author of the hilarious and provocative How to be a Woman. The Chronicles of Narmo is her debut novel written when she was just fifteen years old and based on her own childhood experiences ('Narmo' being 'Moran' spelled backwards.) It demonstrates the precocious wit that has made her one of the most popular writers of the day.
