Last week I received A Tiny Bit Marvellous by Dawn French. It was a win from the LibraryThing October batch of reviewer books. Just from the tiny blurb on the back I'm happily anticipating reading this. The blurb says: 'Everyone hates the perfect family. So you'll love the Battles...' It will be released November 23rd. Published by Penguin, their description reads:
A TINY BIT MARVELLOUS by Dawn French is the story of a modern family all living in their own separate bubbles lurching towards meltdown. It is for anyone who has ever shared a home with that weird group of strangers we call relations.
Mo is about to hit the big 50, and some uncomfortable truths are becoming quite apparent: She doesn't understand either of her teenage kids, which as a child psychologist, is fairly embarrassing. She has become entirely grey. Inside, and out. Her face has surrendered and is frightening children.
Dora is about to hit the big 18 . . . and about to hit anyone who annoys her, especially her precocious younger brother Peter who has a chronic Oscar Wilde fixation.
Then there's Dad . . . who's just, well, dad.
Oh and there's a dog. Called Poo.
