Life is complicated for Lilah. Her family falls apart when her brother Jay disappears. Managing her anger is only possible because of her great friendship with Bindi. Now Jay suddenly returns. All should be well – but it isn’t. Lilah has to keep her famous anger firmly under control as the family regroups. And she has to re-build her friendship with Bindi. Vanessa Curtis has a sharp ear for teenage dialogue and a warm understanding of the confusions of adolescence.

 

This funny and moving story is the follow up to The Taming of Lilah May.
