Everyone hates the perfect family - so you'll love the Battles.

Meet Mo Battle, about to turn 50 and mum to two helpless, hormonal teenagers. There's 17-year-old daughter Dora who blames Mo for, like, EVERYTHING and Peter who believes he's quite simply as darling and marvellous as his hero Oscar Wilde. Somewhere, keeping quiet, is Dad, who's just, well . . . Dad.

However, Mo is having a crisis. She's about to do something unusually wild and selfish, which will leave the entire family teetering on the edge of a precipice.

Will the family fall?

Or will they, when it really matters, be there for each other?

A Tiny Bit Marvellous

Absolutely loved it. Once I got into the characters, it was like a book you can't put down, only earphones you can't pull out of your ear. Dawn's incredible talent for adopting the persona of her characters made it real. I laughed out loud while walking down the middle of street with the adventures of her fictional family playing in my ears. Loved it and want to listen again.

I recommend this story

Very funny, the dogs looked at me like I had gone crazy each time I laughter out loud while on a walk with them!

Regrettable purchase

I have enjoyed Ms French's TV appearances and thought that this book would be an equally enjoyable one. However I thought that the storyline was quite slow and rather predictable, and found myself frequently tuning out from the narration. Possibly the use of a narrator other than Ms French may have been helpful, it felt like there was a blurring of characters due to Ms French approaching each character within the same tone/vein.
