Not the first book of this kind I have read and yet I found it gripping! Even though much of it was not totally new, I devoured the book in a few days ( excuse the pun but it's probably more nutritious to eat the book than a bowl of cornflakes!!). I wish books like this were compulsory reading for school children. My son, aged 14, who is Home Educated is reading it now and is fascinated and demanding changes in shopping habits from his initially reluctant father!! Thanks Ms Lawrence.
