The Nothing Girl's story made me laugh out loud and tearful in places too, I also found myself drinking a lot of tea.....
Well done Jodi Taylor, surely another massive hit. I can see this as a major feature film rivalling ET and Harvey!
At age 13 she contemplates suicide but is talked out of it by a mysterious golden horse called Thomas.
Jenny guided by Thomas decides that enough is enough and she wants to do something with her life- that something is agreeing to marry Russell Checkland her cousin's ex boyfriend, former artist and habitual drunk.
But Russell's offerings of freedom from her Aunt and Uncles may not only help her discover who her true family really is but what she is really made of.
The beginning was a little confusing trying to work out everyone's relationship to each other, as was Jenny's insistence that she still go through with marrying Russell especially at the wedding scene. However the story was quite funny and sweet and had a nice pace to it, the plot kept you interested and I enjoyed all the characters especially as more got added to the household though out the story. The added intrigue and suspicion on all the characters at crucial moments (no spoilers here!) was well written as it really did keep you guessing.
Having read and loved Jodi Taylor's other novels- The Chronicles of St Mary's I found this one slightly darker in some parts but slightly easier to follow as there were no in depth historical aspects or time travel to wrap your head around.
And although I enjoyed the `mysterious behind-the-scenes guardian' elements to Thomas and that the story was more about Jenny growing up and making decisions for herself, I do wish we would have found out more about him.
Overall I thought it was very well written, with a nice touch of humour and an interesting plot.
This is very much the story of Jenny's blossoming from a young woman who is kept in a childlike, dependent condition to an independent, even feisty woman, with a number of pitfalls and unpleasant incidents along the way. As she takes steps to assert her right to a life of her own, lived in accordance with her own wishes rather than in the way which other people have planned for her she faces dangers and challenges along the way and soon comes to the point of wondering why, and how, certain things are happening, her conclusions are surprising, but not when she finally gets a glimpse of the bigger picture, at that point many things become dreadfully clear.
This is a totally different genre of book from the St Mary's Chronicles but no less readable for that. It is an emotional account of the empowering of a woman who is wresting back control of her own life. It is witty and entertaining and an enjoyable read.
