Book Description:

The brilliant new novel from the author of the bestselling Buddha Da

From the Back Cover:

'A tender, lyrical coming-of-age narrative, its people drawn with love in that singing Glasgow voice that is Donovan's signature.' Guardian

Things are never dull for the O'Connell family. Squeezed between her quiet older brother and the mischievous line-dancing twins, Fiona finds her escape in the books of Emily Bront. But tragedy is not confined to Victorian novels, and life for Fiona is about to change forever.

Moving, funny and ultimately heartwarming, Being Emily is a wonderful novel about one young girl trying to find her place in the world amid the turmoil that only your own family can create.

'Anne Donovan is to be cherished: funny, immediate and highly empathetic.'
Times Literary Supplement

'Told in sweetly energetic prose.'
Sunday Herald

'A sparky story . . . this is a charming coming-of-real-life novel.'
