When I requested this book, I thought it was for older teens but I think it’s probably aimed more at the younger teen/tween audience – think Jacqueline Wilson age group. The story follows Jo, a young British Chinese girl growing up in the 1980s. As an 80s kid myself, a lot of Jo’s experiences really clicked with me and there are some real laugh out loud moments, particularly in the first part of the book. The text is interspersed with Cheung’s illustrations which are quirky and fun and really enhance the narrative.

This is the second Jackson Brodie novel I’ve read, the first being Case Histories. The story picks up a few years from the events of the first book. Jackson and Julia are still together and Jackson has been living it up with his millions in France.

When I was a young whippersnapper, I loved reading books from an animal’s point of view. Watership Down, The Animals of Farthing Wood, those weird books where anthropomorphic animals are at war with one another….but short of a few examples of Murakami-esque weirdness, it’s not something I’ve come across very much in adult literature.
