The main character of the story is Harper , she is 12 years old and her parents are divorced much to Harper's dislike. The story is set in the 1980's in England . Harper is torn between her two parents Mary and Pete, trying to be everything to everyone when she should just be worrying about herself . Harper loves to read and thinks of herself as a bit of a misfit but as the story is narrated through her eyes we see she is much more then that and she does not give herself enough credit as she is a thoughtful and a very kind child. The story is bittersweet and thought provoking with a feel good centre plus plenty of quirky characters who are very likeable. I recommend this for anyone who likes an unconventional main character who is not afraid to follow her own path .
