5.0 out of 5 stars
Sad, happy, bittersweet - this book has it all and more, 20 Oct. 2012
The characters in this book are what make it for me - you can't help but love them and feel for them. Jimmy is wonderful - northern, downtrodden, pessimistic and completely lacking self-belief - but with an inner strength, humour and beauty that makes you care deeply about him.
The story line is full of surprises - not one of those books when you know what's going to happen. The style of writing is colloquial which is I really enjoyed. There is a bit of proofreading needed - but I'm picky like that and it certainly didn't take away from the book.
Read it - it will surprise you :)
