    One thought on “Happy Accidents”

    1. This book is fun and smart. Tiffany Murray has created a cast of dark and eccentric characters who are all somehow outrageously real.

    2. I haven't enjoyed a book this much in ages.This is so well written it will stand the test of time.A laugh out loud tale of Kate's dysfunctional extended family and the times.

    3. Nearly-eleven-year-old Kate Happy lives in a creepy, smelly old farmhouse in the part of England--on the Welsh border--that's probably best known for constant rain. She's living with her Jewish-American grandma and bonkers grandad, because her Mum's off in some hippy commune and her Dad, having been run over by her Mum in her red sports car, is dead and kept in a mayonnaise jar. She avoids school whenever she can, barely gets to eat because her grandmother doesn't believe in getting fat, and is [...]

    4. I had the honor and pleasure of studying writing with the guidance of Tiffany Murray, and it was this very book that helped me to confidently choose her as a tutor. The story is so funny that it is sad; the writing is so descriptive, that it jumps in your heart before it comes to your mind; the events are so gruesomely unbelievable that you know, they are based on real life: at least, they grow from that pile of compost we call our past. The characters stayed with me for a while after reading. I [...]

    5. I enjoyed this book so much that as I came closer to the end I battled with myself over delaying finishing it to drag it out and enjoy it for longer or rushing on to completion - the paradox presented by a good book.

    6. Some great characters (especially grandma Iris and grandpa Larry) but as a story, it lost its meandering way. I didn't have any sense of resolution at the end.

    7. A brilliant novel, dark yet hilarious. Kate Happy's story about growing up with her Jewish grandmother on the Welsh border is busy, alive and delightful. It will make you laugh and cry.
