A Greyhound of a Girl by Roddy Doyle

It is to be expected that a children's book from Roddy Doyle would be funny, poignant and very, very Irish. 

A Greyhound of a Girl doesn't disappoint on any of these points. It is beautifully written with characters that charm you from the start.

This is a four generational story of mothers and daughters; a ghost story; a road trip; a tear-jerker! The big themes of life and death are dealt with deftly and delicately.

Highly recommended for 10+ readers, teens and well, anyone really. 

A great story, simply told that deserves to have no limits set for readership!
