Summary

Life is made up of three parts: in The First Third, you're embarrassed by your family; in the second, you make a family of your own; and in the end, you just embarrass the family you've made. That's how Billy's grandmother explains it, anyway. She's given him her bucket list (cue embarrassment), and now, it's his job to glue their family back together. 

No pressure or anything. Fixing his family's not going to be easy and Billy's not ready for change. But as he soon discovers, the first third has to end some time. And then what? It's a Greek tragedy waiting to happen.

Greek grandmothers, best mates, first kisses, and moussaka

Will Kostakis heart-warming coming-of-age story beautifully narrated by Stavros Yiannoukas, will have you smiling, laughing, and welling up in equal measure. Follow the narrator Bill as he transitions from awkward teenager to adulthood aided by the wisdom of his irrepressible Giagia (yaya - grandmother).
