Great read - heartbreakingly real. I finished it in a day ... praying for a happy ending for the author and her brother. I look forward to a sequel.

A gripping true story filled with pain but overcome with a fantastic humour. I couldn't put this book down. I look forward to hopefully reading another ofPoppy's books in the future

An atmospheric story line about the lives of two children brought up in the north east! A tail of love, laughter and pure hatred in the end! Great social references. Looking forward to hearing more from Poppy Whitfield!
