"[a] funny, sad, brilliantly doodled diary."

In 1980s Coventry, Jo Kwan has just moved into a shared bedroom above her parents’ new takeaway. Contending with normal teenage insecurities – too short and the “wrong” shape, will she ever get a boyfriend? – alongside parental neglect and abuse, as well as racist bullying at school, Jo turns to her artistic talents to help her find an escape in this funny, sad, brilliantly doodled diary.
