Summary

It's 1988. Harper Richardson's mum and dad are divorced. Her mum got custody of her, the Mini and 500 tins of baked beans. Her dad got a mouldering cottage in a Midlands backwater village and plenty of free time to indulge his WWII obsession.

What a Way to Go is a warm, wise and witty tale of one girl's mission to run headfirst into the middle of some of life's big questions - and to come out the other side with some reasonable answers.

Critic reviews

"What a fabulous novel! So fresh, touching, truthful and laugh-out-loud funny. I absolutely loved it." (Deborah Moggach)
"A brilliant debut. Sharp, sweet, bristling with wit and full of hilarious, wildly imaginative observations." (Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Animals)
