4.0 out of 5 stars Go Granny, Go! July 4, 2013

"My Granny used to be normal." As soon as I read those opening words of "Free As A Ladybird" I knew that this was my kind of book! This charming story, told from the standpoint of a young girl named Natasha, centers on a cantankerous Granny who refuses to behave the way that she is expected to, despite the protests of her daughter, Natasha's mom. Though they love each other the two women have certainly had their differences, fueled mostly by Granny's need for independence and her misguided but well-meaning daughter's need to protect her. But when old Granny starts sporting purple clothing and hanging out at the pub with her dart playing friends the "Flaming Arrows", the fur really starts to fly! Fed up and determined to get on with her life instead of reliving the past, Granny runs away and sets out on a grand adventure that leads her to her true home. "Free As A Ladybird" is a sweet, funny story penned by a talented writer. Just read it; I'm sure you will agree.
