STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Combine a bit of Shameless, some Modern Family and a touch of The Royal Tenenbaums with a soupçon of sadness.
💛 Tongue-in-cheek with shades of subtly dark humour, the tone of this book was well within my wheelhouse. Likewise, the themes of family and belonging and that little matter of the meaning of life, all fascinating.
💙 There was so much brilliant about this, but I couldn’t connect with the characters – not even Charlie - and I struggled with the conclusions reached, particularly as regards second chances and wiping out mistakes.
💚 In conclusion, it’s not you, Mr Ferris. It’s me.
Big thanks to Hachette Audio, Little, Brown & Company and NetGalley for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.
