WHAT A WAY TO GO, Paperback


"1988. 12-year-old Harper Richardson's parents are divorced.

Her mum got custody of her, the Mini, and five hundred tins of baked beans.

Her dad got a mouldering cottage in a Midlands backwater village and default membership of the Lone Rangers single parents' club.

Harper got questionable dress sense, a zest for life, two gerbils, and her Chambers dictionary, and the responsibility of fixing her parents' broken hearts...Set against a backdrop of high hairdos and higher interest rates, pop music and puberty, divorce and death, What a Way to Go is a warm, wise and witty tale of one girl tackling the business of growing up while those around her try not to fall apart.
