Everyone hates the perfect family. So you’ll love the Battles. Mo is about to hit the big 50, and some uncomfortable truths are becoming quite apparent: She doesn’t understand either of her teenage kids, which as a child psychologist, is fairly embarrassing. She has become entirely grey. Inside, and out. Her face has surrendered and is frightening children. Dora is about to hit the big 18 . . . and about to hit anyone who annoys her, especially her precocious younger brother Peter who has a chronic Oscar Wilde fixation. Then there’s Dad . . . who’s just, well, dad. A TINY BIT MARVELLOUS is the story of a modern family all living in their own separate bubbles lurching towards meltdown. It is for anyone who has ever shared a home with that weird group of strangers we call relations. Oh and there’s a dog. Called Poo.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so Marvellous For quite some time it didn’t feel as if the story was going anywhere and parts were quite long winded, with excessive rambling and question marks. Although it did keep my attention and I like this genre, the characters weren't likable and I just didn't enjoy the story.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so Marvellous My initial impression of the three characters was that they were annoying. I often wondered about the authors approach to her characters. Peter/Oscar’s point of view was by far the most interesting. Dora on the other hand had a superficial attitude that was way over the top. Her disrespect towards her mother was appalling. Mo was prone to going off on unnecessary tangents. She also made some remarks towards her children that left me shocked. I think they were an attempt to be humorous but they really missed the mark.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tiny bit awful! Didn't enjoy this at all. Storyline was quite weak and didn't really feel anything for the characters. Quite disappointing. :-
