Eight-year-old Ivy has a vivid imagination and tells lies so that people will like her. With her brother, Brice, in hospital, life at home feels unsettled and things become even more strained after her father loses his job, along with his sense of purpose. Her parents might divorce and her best friend hates her but, ever creative, Ivy abandons her escapist fantasies and determines to uncover the truth. "Ivy’s voice is pure and soulful, her eyes are quick and wide, her mind witty and marvellous. Anyone who ever had an unbounded imagination will love her... Not a word is wasted, not a line out of place; the story unfolds with perfect timing and articulation." - TripFiction "Every character is sensitively and realistically drawn as the novel explores the truth and lies that both adults and children tell in order to feel secure in an unsafe world." - Pamreader Paperback: 288 pages Publisher: Myriad Editions (16 May 2013) Language: English ISBN: 978-1-908434-24-1 Size: 129mm x 198mm
