I received my copy of Viga s book this morningand guess what I ve already read it I love Viga s style of writing which I know from her two earlier books No Tears for My Father and Learning to Love Myself This book is much lighter often laugh out loud funny and sometimes uite sad reminding me of how cruel girls can be to each other at school but mainly joyful with plenty of laughsI m always amazed how Viga has managed to achieve such a wonderful sense of humour despite all the adversities of her life I admire her immensely and just wish there was another book in the pipeline But I also know I will enjoy re reading all of her worksMany thanks for sharing so much with us all Viga A truly remarkable womanCheri x
