    This book is inspired. Even though it’s set in Ireland and is written with Irish slang, it’s a wonderful and touching story. Each of these women are sparkling and alive, even Tansy. Emer is the type of grandmother that everyone wants to have, she’s cheeky and not afraid to have a laugh, even in the hospital. Although this book was written for young adults, it’s something that every woman, no matter her age, can enjoy. It would also be a brilliant way to spark interest in a child about her distant family.

    This book is a tale about love and loss, and the connection between daughter and mother's. I found this book both funny yet tedious. I loved the cheekiness of Mary, and some of the witty lines that Doyle has included in the dialogue, yet I also found myself struggling to keep my attention focused.

    This is a ghost story, without being scary. Yet 12-year-old Mary and her mother Scarlett don't seem to be wary or worried that ghost's are real or that one has turned up on their doorstep - they just took it in their stride, which struck me as rather odd. After stealing Mary's dying grandmother from the hospital, they take a trip to the farm she grew up.

    Doyle has made this book fun and serious all at the same time, I even found myself reading with a (horrible) Irish accent!

    This book would be perfect for understanding death and the importance of family for a younger child - but adults would love it as well.
