Lou's world is changing, breaking down, chaos is seeping in- a touching , unsettling and darkly hilarious novel told by a cool narrator who observes the world-school, family, love- in a way that makes you want to laugh and cry. 'Hilarious.' Mugglenet. Sunday Times Book of the Week, nominated for The Carnegie. An outstanding debut-funny, brave and unpredictable. A beautiful blend of humour, insight, compassion and a touch of darkness. The narrator's voice is strong, funny and original.
