Peg always felt a little blurred, a little lacking in definition. Her mother died when she was six, her father simply disappeared, and she was brought up by her grandparents and her obese, bedridden aunt. But, despite all this, she never developed the habit of asking questions. At least, not until she met Loz, her straight-talking, psychotherapeutically literate girlfriend, who urges her to confront her demons. But Peg starts to wonder whether her youthful lack of curiousity might not have been a good thing. A very good thing indeed....

Horrifyingly, sickeningly fatphobic and ableist. Also incredulously preachy and irritatingly improbable plot. Was suggested that this was like Sophie Hannah's work. It's really not.
