This book is another fabulous example of Poppy Nwosu's skill at exploring deep teenage issues while maintaining a humorous edge.
Lottie's family is broken, which seems to be the norm. Rather than facing up to issues, she allows her impulsive nature to constantly land her in trouble and alienate others. But she has three precious allies: a best female friend; a best male friend; and a doting dad.
Her journey to take down Evelyn, her stepmother and anyone else who gets in her way, turns into a journey of self-discovery and opens wounds to family drama that many of us live on a daily basis.
This story is eloquently told with a host of colourful characters that will take you from giggling and rolling laughter to tears. Lottie's volatility is the perfect portrayal of teenage angst and self-absorption.
