Synopsis

Everyone hates the perfect family. So you’ll love the Battles. Mo is about to hit the big 50, and some uncomfortable truths are becoming quite apparent: She doesn’t understand either of her teenage kids, which as a child psychologist, is fairly embarrassing. She has become entirely grey. Inside, and out. Her face has surrendered and is frightening children. Dora is about to hit the big 18 . . . and about to hit anyone who annoys her, especially her precocious younger brother Peter who has a chronic Oscar Wilde fixation. Then there’s Dad . . . who’s just, well, dad. A TINY BIT MARVELLOUS is the story of a modern family all living in their own separate bubbles lurching towards meltdown. It is for anyone who has ever shared a home with that weird group of strangers we call relations. Oh and there’s a dog. Called Poo.

Not so Marvellous
June 26th, 2015
For quite some time it didn’t feel as if the story was going anywhere and parts were quite long winded, with excessive rambling and question marks. Although it did keep my attention and I like this genre, the characters weren't likable and I just didn't enjoy the story.

Didn't enjoy this at all. Storyline was quite weak and didn't really feel anything for the characters. Quite disappointing. :-
