This gorgeous Irish novel is Derry Girls with a subtly wicked edge—quiet in all the right places and inappropriately comical in an if-I-don’t-laugh-I’ll-cry sort of way. Murray deftly and lovingly explores the ups and downs of adolescence and its long-lasting effects on the psyche. For anyone who has ever been a teenager—worried that their existence was all too much and meaningless at the same time—this is your book.
