I loved this book, the honesty & humour & the ability to relate to a 'real woman'. I hope there's more as I'm intrigued to know if Brendon remained in education, if Sophie & Colin's relationship flourishes or fizzles & if the mysterious 'Voice' rears its ugly word play??
I loved every Page. Was hooked from the first chapter! Forget about everything else just get on with the Sequel!
This is a wonderful book that depicts the roller coaster ride for a parent of a "special needs" child. I am glad the book is realistic and not overwhelmingly long nor heavily depressing. If this book were read by more, perhaps there would be better understanding in our world.

Gender: Cynical slick chick.
Age: New age, old school.
Height: 1.70 m
Low: Running out of cappuccino sachets.
My personality test described me as a spontaneous idealist and I have to agree. I am at my best and liveliest when playing with new, creative ideas. I'm a great believer in freedom to express without restraints and being passionate about your work. If what you do doesn't bring you joy then you shouldn't be doing it; you'll never do it well.
Writing: Whilst I have had many freelance roles in this field writing for tabloids, magazines and businesses, my preferred style is of a whimsical nature. I like to observe people, life and situations and find the humour within. I enjoy reaching into the deeper emotions of readers and making them feel. I write in a storytelling fashion that enables me to engage with the reader and paint a visual picture that they can relate to, or empathise with.
Strengths: Accidental life coach and practicing mentalist.
Weaknesses: Bad hair days but sexy hair made me what I am.
Dreams: Floating above castles in the air, from a pipe.
Realities: What? Again?
Likes: Hammocks on beaches with a margarita in each hand, Apple products to an alarmingly, unhealthy degree, junkets, travel, reading, exploring, bacon, freedom, red lippy, chess, backgammon and word games. Would like to be best friends with Tyrion Lannister, Stephen Fry or David Walliams.
Dislikes: Hierarchy, control, English weather, black pudding, long queue’s, strawberries, maths, internet failure and spiders.
Synopsis: A free spirited, quirky soul with a passion for the fanciful, that won’t go out in the rain unless here’s a tarantula in the living room.
