Paperback / softback

Description

Lizzie Vogel's story continues in Paradise Lodge, the brilliantly comic sequel to Nina Stibbe's hilarious Man at the Helm. 'LOVE it! Instant classic - funny, wise, touching, entirely delightful' MARIAN KEYES*****Working in a care home is not really a suitable job for a schoolgirl but 15-year-old Lizzie Vogel went for it.

It just seemed too exhausting to commit to being a full-time girlfriend or a punk (it is the 1970s after all), plus she has some knowledge of old people.

They're not suited to granary bread, and you mustn't compare them to toddlers, but she doesn't know there's a right way to get someone out of the bath - or what to do when someone dies. When a rival old people's home with better parking and daily chairobics threatens to take all their residents, Paradise Lodge's cast of staff and helpers have to come together to save the home before it's too late. From the bestselling author of Love, Nina comes a story of being very young, and very old, and the laughter and tears in between. *****'The one problem with reviewing Stibbe is that I just want to quote entire pages: it's all so brilliant' THE I'Stibbe looks at another chapter of her life through the prism of her trademark deadpan, acutely observed humour' STYLIST'A dollop of nostalgia and very British humour' GLAMOUR
