This coming of age story is narrated by young Elly and explores her close bond with her pet rabbit named God; her gay brother Joe; and Jenny Penny, her unusual and secretive best friend from school. The vivid and lively characterisation is one of the book's greatest strengths and there are a large number of queer characters. There's Charlie, Joe's first love; Elly's Aunt Nancy, a famous actress and lesbian; Arthur, a camp ex-diplomat who is writing a memoir of his notorious exploits; and his best friend Ginger, a Shirley Bassey impersonator. Fresh, appealing, and extremely funny.
