With wry humour it will strike a chord with every mother and daughter up and down the land with its brilliant portrayal of everyday life. Acutely funny and by turns very tender it will grip you from first page to last. Moving, true-to-life and poignant it is undoubtedly a book for every generation of woman.

If you like Kate Figes you might also like to read books by Catherine Dunne, Allison Pearson and Louise Wener.

Synopsis

What About Me, Too? by Kate Figes

In this delightful sequel to What About Me?, we are a year on...

Sue is a GP, her busy life filled with demanding but lovable patients, demanding but lovable children, a husband, and a new dog. But she has just enough time to notice the rather gorgeous neighbour who walks his black lab in the park.

Frankie is about to do her GCSEs, and is absolutely certain that no-one is as stressed as she is, nor as in love, nor as confused.

Lola is eleven, and endearingly aware of those around her, including all her friends (and whether they are, or not), her Granny, her pain-in-the-neck but scrumptious new baby brother, and the fact that her Dad is spending a lot of time texting. And when she sneaks a peek at his calls, there are far too many to someone called Laura. Suddenly, Lola feels overburdened with guilt and responsibility, so just what is she to do?

What About Me, Too? is a searingly honest account of life in a normal London household, of how perceptive children can be, and how the dismantling of a marriage can be both devastating and liberating at once.
