This compelling novel pulls no punches as its narrator Lily struggles to come to terms with her past, live with severe epilepsy, and look for her long lost brother Mikey. A first novel that's gritty, often humorous and thought provoking.
When I picture myself chucking a fit, I see myself from behind. I stiffen up like a shop dummy, scream like an animal being shot, then topple. I see myself in slow motion, like in a film. I look unhinged, and when I hit the floor, I begin my hurly-burly .... My life's all chopped up to fuck because my stupid fucking brain keeps flipping off and on.
