This is the second book by Amanda Milo that I've read. I really enjoyed the first - but this one ... so LOL funny. I absolutely loved Simmi - what a delightful bundle of neuroses! So much nicer reading a book that made me laugh than others that have made me cry. Last - I'm so with you on leeches, had one on me once 40 odd yrs ago - some things never leave you :-)
Absolutely love the humour throughout your books. I feel these characters are amazing and of course love the added notes and taking me to my cartoon days. I think that your beautiful mind just speaks to us non-normals, that it's ok to be unique! No Barbie off the assembly line. Appreciate it!
