'This book is everything I would have expected from the wonderful Mel Giedroyc.

Funny and touching*****''I could hear Mel reading this book!

Terrific characters. Very entertaining *****''Some very funny and clever writing.

The final chapter might make your eyes leaky *****''One of the best things I've read this year.

Please read it *****''I felt like Mel was reading this into my ear.

A very human story. I was left with the warm fuzzys at the end****''A comedy that would make a brilliant film or sitcom.

The Parker family are a chaotic, loveable bunch''I zipped through it with many an accompanying titter, the occasional chortle and the odd unladylike snort.

A nice piece of escapism, so needed at this time ****''Warm, interesting, clever and funny, as well as poignant at times.

A brave heroine, a cast of strong characters and a page-turner of a story *****''Glorious storytelling, this is a rich comedic feast of domesticity.

Excellent characters. Kept me gripped throughout. It's going to be a big hit *****'
