Yeah, so, if you know me you know that Susin is one of the authors that I’m a wee bit obsessed about. And this book? Quirky, funny and oh-so GOOD!
Twelve-year-old Violet Gustafson’s TV director father has caused a huge upheaval: he’s left his family in Vancouver to start afresh with his new, blonde trophy wife in LA. To Violet, it seems like he’s traded in his old life for a new and improved one – complete with new and improved children. When her mother takes up with the unfortunately named Dudley Wiener after a series of disastrous relationships, Violet – with the help of her best friend Phoebe – decides to take control. After all, her mother’s dating choices directly affect her and her sister Rosie, too. If her mom can’t pick a decent man herself, Violet will help her to snag the most perfect one of all: George Clooney. In turns brazen, infuriating, and hysterical, Violet’s antics will delight readers, who will root for her, even when she’s at her worst. In this poignant, funny new novel, author Susin Nielsen explores the emotional fallout of divorce – and creates a true original in Violet, whose outrageous yet always heartfelt ploys to set things right will resonate with readers for years to come.
Thanks so much to Susin for the donation. And for not slapping me with a restraining order. http://www.susinnielsen.com/
