The Cantankerous Molly Darling

Molly Darling wants life to be as simple as wellies and porridge – this is rural Ireland after all.

Instead, Mum’s hiding in the attic; Dad’s run away, leaving only a PowerPoint to explain; her sister has a ham sandwich for a fiancé; there’s a boy and THE silence; her BFF will stop at nothing to go viral; and the chickens are missing. It’s enough to make any girl cantankerous. But she’ll fix it all. Easy, right?

Cold Comfort Farm meets Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging – perfect for fans of Louise Rennison.

 
Falling in love with broken things

Falling in love with broken things can be described as a coming-of-age narrative. Alive with crisp images, the poems range from childhood memories of freedom and enchantment to the uncertainties of adolescence and young adulthood.

 

Unflinchingly, they look at early experiences of loss, at complex and ambivalent family relationships and the mysteries of love and heartbreak. It is a first collection that will resonate with and delight readers, a book they won’t want to put down until they have finished it in one sitting.
