I read this on a coach from Heathrow to Gloucester and never lifted my eyes from the page. I wanted to take Piety home, I was terrified what might happen to her little brother, and in a nutshell I was totally drawn in to this little girl’s life.
Piety has an old head on young shoulders, and takes life as it comes. And it does come, with some ups and a lot of downs, and how Piety deals with these held me in thrall. Evocatively told, with many snippets of (often heart-wrenching) humour, Piety’s tale is full of emotion with not one shred of sentimentality.
Buy it, read it. It’s different and it’s a pure delight.
