Review

What a fabulous novel! So fresh, touching, truthful and laugh-out-loud funny. I absolutely loved it. Author: Deborah Moggach

I hugely, entirely enjoyed this book. What a Way to Go is richly transporting - and so funny, and so moving. Julia Forster has all the marks of a prize-winning novelist; you know it from the first pages. Author: Horatio Clare

A brilliant debut. Sharp, sweet, bristling with wit and full of hilarious, wildly imaginative observations. In Harper Julia Forster has created a bold and distinctive 12 year old voice that manages to be nostalgic and authentic at the same time. Author: Emma Jane Unsworth, author of 'Animals'

I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Harper is such a lovable, funny character, and seeing the the 1980s through her eyes is both moving and revealing. I loved the 'mis-en-scene' of Blackbrake, the whole small town atmosphere where the skies are as grey as her 'school uniform', and I thought the monstrously selfish but somehow sympathetic Mum is a great comic creation. Above all, I thought Harper's tone was perfectly judged, that mix of knowingness, naivete, and humour was great. It deserves to do really well. I will put a 5 star review on Amazon! Author: Francis Gilbert

I haven't enjoyed a book this much in ages. It's wonderful... Harper [is] an amazing protagonist - all the things I wanted to be at that age but probably never was - bright, funny, inquisitive, happy in her own skin. Author: Megan Bradbury, author of 'Everyone Is Watching'

Oh, this one is good, so very good. Heart-breaking, humorous and thought provoking. Thank you Julia Foster for a brilliant debut novel. Author: Phylippa Smithson for lovereading.co.uk

Poignant, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny and a fabulous portrait of the time. Source: Woman & Home

As a first novel it has promise, with some sensitive writing and funny lines. Source: The Scotsman

This is a bittersweet tale of one girl just at the cusp of becoming a young woman with a burgeoning mind of her own, and a blossoming sense of life's possibilities. Source: The Western Mail

What a Way to Go is very funny and warm, sometimes sad, always beautifully written and just a ... joy [to read]. Author: Hayley Long, blogger and author, twice nominated for the Costa Award

Book Description

A gorgeous, big-hearted debut novel of a young girl tackling the business of growing up while those around her try not to fall apart.
