I enjoyed this book immensely. The characters came across as real people. Grandma wasn't the stereotypical rosy cheeked jolly woman, teenage son wasn't just a being that grunted in the corner and best of all the three main characters had problems and worries just like everyone else. The story progresses over the course of a few months and despite the storyline jumping between the three of them it was actually very easy to follow and keep track of what was happening with who. Together they overcome their problems by working together and supporting each other so that by the end of the story the future looks a lot more positive for all of them and their families.
Perhaps one of the parts of the book which appealed to me most is Gemma overhearing her daughter referring to her as "just a mum". I felt that this was very observant as many mums have probably felt this way at some time and it made the character all the more real to me that she wasn't just accepting of her role as a mum/housewife but did want something more. Happily she does achieve this.
Light hearted and heart rendering in places.
