The Kid Normal books are just brilliant, Murph is a great character, so likeable and really funny. These books make you laugh out loud and are really hard to put down -- Lydib, age 11 * Toppsta *
Although this book is delightfully fun and witty, which it really is, it also has many serious elements too. I was enthralled by the plot, which has so many twists and it kept me giggling the entire time!
