    • I loved this book Loved the character of Shell, her dad and Kremski best Loved the fact that it is set in the era of the 70s and 80s having been a child of that era myself Will definitely read her other novels.


    • Loved this collection of short stories set in the 80s in Ontario So many perfect details that really capture the era I liked watching Shell grow up and found it so reminiscent of my own childhood I have a feeling I ll come back to these stories again and again.


    • DNF around page 200, This just isn t my type of book, gave it a real shot, but when Joan Jett turned up and was only ever referred to by her full name, the book got weird.


    • UPDATE Maybe even better upon second reading Completely absorbing.Just a gem Shell is so real and relatable it hurts I highly recommend this one.
