Tanvi, filled with a love of life that overflows on to the page, hurls herself into every activity available, and when she induces Ro to join the choir, Ro’s gorgeous voice is revealed — but Bonnie has a habit of scuppering every endeavour. Relatable characters and well-crafted dialogue make this a thoroughly engaging read.
Forget teenagers failing to keep their rooms tidy – in this brilliant, if occasionally pulverisng novel... There are some welcome lighter moments too despite an absent father who is no use at all and a mother who remains hopelessly immature and childish... No lazy stereotypes here! This is Lisa Williamson’s third novel, and like its predecessors scores highly for sheer readability. Compassionate and understanding, even where silly spoilt Bonnie is concerned, this is YA fiction at its most assured. I defy anyone not to be moved as well as richly entertained by this excellent novel.
