Hi lovelies! Hope you’re having a good week so far!

I don’t know what to write for the intro here anymore, because it’s a weekly meme, and not a post with unique type of content, so let’s just go straight and see which book I picked for this week’s Wednesday Shelf Control!

Today’s featuring book is…

too-close-to-home

Too Close to Home by Aoife Walsh

How I got it:

I bought a paperback copy at a local bookstore.

When I got it:

2016… I guess?

Why I want to read it:

I’m so used to reading fantasy books that I still find it hard to get to know the contemporary stuff in general, and ones that contain diversity in specific. I picked this book after reading a blurb which seems very interesting and of something I could partially relate to.

Meet Minny: her life is a complicated whirlwind of unbearable PE lessons, annoying friends and impossible-to-live-with siblings. Minny is desperate for some space in a house spilling over with family and hangers-on. She has to contend with her autistic sister Aisling’s school bullies, whilst trying to keep her self-absorbed BFF Penny happy, and look normal in front of new boy Franklin. And on top of this, now Dad has announced that he’s returning to London – with his new girlfriend.

Secrets, lies and home truths will out, frying pans will be burnt, and arguments will flare up in a story full of humour, honesty and minor household emergencies.
