Summary

This Mother's Day...you will call her Mummy....

Glamorous, beautiful Mummy has everything a woman could want...except for a little daughter of her very own. So when she sees Kim - heavily pregnant, glued to her phone and ignoring her eldest child in a busy shop - she does what anyone would do. She takes her. But little foul-mouthed Tonya is not the daughter that Mummy was hoping for: disobedient, uncooperative and always asking about the funny smell coming from the cellar.

Meanwhile Kim is demonised by the media as a 'scummy mummy', who deserved to lose Tonya and ought to have her other children taken too. Haunted by memories of her abusive childhood, and refusing to play by the media's rules, she begins to spiral, turning on those who love her.

Though they are worlds apart, Mummy and Kim have more in common than they could possibly imagine. But it is five-year-old Tonya who is caught in the middle....

Gripping

This book started great, I didn't like the character mummy. I don't think we are meant to so that's no big deal.
glad I listened to this and not tried to read the book as I think I would have struggled with all the jumping between characters.
I couldn't help but feel that the end was quite rushed. I don't like when lose ends are left and not felt with.

Parts of this story were fantastic and some were too obvious and a bit annoying. Having said that I had to stay up until 1am last night to find out what happened to Tonya so the book kept my interest.

Returned it

There didn't seem to be any plot development. I listened to 6 hours of it and nothing happened to progress the story at all. The narrator does her best but the book is mind numbingly boring.

Good story but too drawn out

I struggled to finish the book as it was very slow and drawn out. The narration was fine but the excessive bad language took away from the story. It is not one I will be recommending to friends

Brilliant narrator

Have already read and enjoyed as an ebook but thought I would give the audio version a try. The narrator has done a great job with all the characters, giving them a different voice. highly recommend
