Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit of a letdown, but still worth reading. A much darker book than her first one, Ida B, but still written with her trademark gentle prose. Delly Pattison and Ferris Boyd are two characters you won't soon forget. Hannigan has a unique way with language that deserves to be experienced and the ability to express a child's voice. That said, this book didn't uplift me like Ida B and left me wishing for more.
