Playing with the Grown-ups

by Sophie Dahl - £7.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747593522 | ISBN 10: 0747593523

Kitty's mother, Marina, is both utterly beguiling and terrifyingly embarrassing, and more often than not Kitty can only gaze on her antics with awe and toe-curling trepidation. But as Kitty grows up it becomes clear that perhaps Marina isn't the most exemplary of parents, and that sometimes a girl might have to put herself first.
 
Sophie Dahl writes with a keen eye, a warm heart and wonderful lyricism about a coming-of-age that's quite unlike any other.

"Sweet and enetertaining... Packed full of bumbling aristocrats, boarding-school romance and American suitors proffering martinis, it proves Dahl has inherited her grandfather's talent."
(Eve)
