Sweet Story of ordinary people in extraordinary world,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Never Seconds: The Incredible Story of Martha Payne (Paperback)
I purchased this out of curiousity; many people will recall this story from earlier in the year and now this charity book has been released.
First of all, this is a beautiful book-high quality paper, full colour photos from Martha's blog and lot of pictures of Malawi and the family.
Secondly, what a story. And well told by the father of Martha. If you're a parent, you'll absolutely identify with this book. Imagine if your young child was thrown into being a global star in just a few months-how would ou cope? The answer is that the Payne family seemed to be overwhelmed, but the kids come across as very grounded despite being asked to take part in amazing things that other children would be brattish about. The parents seem very nice and sensible and this is a very warm book. Stories of rejecting Hollywood film deals while going camping give you an idea of this! Likeable, ordinary people in a very unique situation.
I'll now be buying copies for gifts for Xmas. Brilliant stuff.
