Customer Review

13 June 2017
This book was recommended by an eminent book reviewer. I cannot speak too highly of it. As a debut, it's a gem. Moving, delightful & written in the kind of sweet language that attaches like a song. From the beginning, I fell in love with Little Gold. And then with the glorious Peggy Baxter who is possibly my favourite character of the year so far.
Believable child characters are a big ask & as Allie Rogers unfolds her story for us, she nails this one. Little Gold's family is falling apart. Her mother is an alcoholic, her father has disappeared. In spite of her own demons, her big sister does her best. Little Gold's older brother is also vulnerable. These are children learning how to survive, how to be brave. It's a beautiful, bittersweet story marrying coming-of-age with end-of life & the setting - Brighton in the 80s - is perfectly observed. Highly recommended.
