Fabulous book! Deep look into Thomas, a teenager with many strikes against him - the biggest one his weird family, although the story is a very rich one in its undertones - death, memory, secrets, first love and divorce. Really enjoyed this book.

This was an amazingly funny book. I own it, have read it five times, and wouldn't part with it for anything. Thomas Penman is a curious and imaginative boy growing up in a house full of secrets and he feels that it's his job to find every answer to every question. It's all from his point of view, and at times the reader feels like his conscience. "Don't do it, Thomas! Don't go in there! Hurry! RUN!" I loved it. Reminded me a little of David Sedaris mixed Augusten Burroughs. The writer has a way of making me laugh until i nearly pee myself...even when the situations SHOULDN'T be comical.
