Reviews

"With the wisecracking Lette at the helm, the gags flow thick and fast . . . But it is the thread of seriousness in the writing, the insistence on respecting people as individuals and not labelling them, that makes this an exceptional novel." * Mail on Sunday * "With her usual mixture of huge heart and humour she rips the stigma out of autism" * Ruby Wax * "Deliciously rude and darkly funny, but with compassion and humanity at its heart. Read with relish." * Nicole Kidman * "A novel that'll have you laughing and crying" * OK! * "Alternately hilarious and heart-breaking, I loved every minute I spent reading this." * The Daily Mail *
