Young Mary Newton, born into a large Irish family in a small Watford semi, is always getting into trouble. When she isn’t choking back fits of giggles at Holy Communion or eating Chappie dog food for a bet, she’s accidentally setting fire to the local school. Mary is a trouble magnet. And unlike her brothers, somehow she always gets caught.... Britain in the 1970s is a world where R. White's lemonade is drunk in secret, curry comes in a box marked "Vesta", and beanz meanz Heinz.
Disappointing but I will buy the next!

This was a great biography really well written. I also enjoyed the narration Mary Portas is a natural unlike many authors who's narration sometimes spoils a good book. The story does not bring us up to the present so hope there will be another book in the future. Highly recommended.
