Book Description

"Full of humour and genuine feeling … A highly attractive novel.” The Observer.

“So well written that it is difficult to put down.” The School Librarian

Jo’s secret haven is the beautiful garden of the big house nearby – until it is sold to a property developer who plans to cover it with houses and flats. In her efforts to save it she finds herself tangling with a very mixed collection of neighbours, struggling to find her way around the unreasonably big Town Hall, having to deal with the secret problem she thinks of only as It, learning quite a lot about her own family and getting some unexpected help from a long-dead ancestor.

When Jo discovers that her haven (the apparantly deserted next door garden) is to be demolished by a property manager to produce a block of flats she is determined to save the garden. To do this she has to get the help and support of neighbours she has never met before, she is a shy girl and finds it hard to confront them. As the story continues she starts to build up her courage, but will it be enough to stop them destroying the garden?

5.0 out of 5 stars So funny. 29 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was the funniest book I have read ever!!! I took it on holiday with me and was sitting by the pool and in the lounge area trying not to laugh out loud. Sometimes I was crying with laughter. Must have looked very peculiar! All of the characters and descriptions were drawn so specifically it was like watching tv or watching a movie. Great read and will lift you out of a low mood very quickly. Would definitely recommend and I will definitely be reading this again.
