Have you ever wanted to step out of your life and be someone different?From the author of JUBILEE - a Top 10 bestseller and Richard & Judy choice - the story of woman who decides to become a hero. Jenny Pepper never expected to end up like this. Tired of her unglamorous part-time job, the relentless domestic grind, and bewildered by her teenage daughter, one night Jenny stumbles into a vigilante rescue.
Suddenly her world is exciting again. No longer is she ordinary, trying to understand her place in life - now she's a hero.
In the costume, she can be anyone she wants. And so her secret life begins. But when the dangers become very real, Jenny's need for adventure takes a different turn. We all want to feel special, and we all have a moment in our lives when we realise that - just perhaps - we might be more extraordinary than we think... Readers say:'Funny, sad and marvellously entertaining ...it will leave many readers with some interesting questions about their own lives.' Goodreads 5 star'A sensitive and raw depiction of a long marriage and motherhood and identity and self worth.
Loved it.' Goodreads'A surprisingly touching look at a female mid-life crisis in the face of frightening and tragic events...
Jenny Pepper - the protagonist, the Vigilante herself - is perfection: so vulnerable and so righteously angry; so wonderfully, hilariously, movingly true.' Goodreads 5 star'Shelley Harris has done 'that' thing.
Written a book that deals with some dark issues, and looks quite deeply at relationships whilst still being funny and an easy read.
Vigilante is one of those books that make you gasp and smile within one paragraph.
Light-hearted at times, yet deadly serious at others.
A finely balanced story that delivers a satisfying punch.' Goodreads
