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!
