    "In the event of my untimely death, please burn this unread."

    No, don’t DO it! Prim’s alive (though the dashing Roderick is, alas, no more). She’s sixteen. She’s trying to make sense of her mum’s diaries. She is trying desperately to make Joel be friends with her again, but he’s all friends with Karen (aka the devil) now, and Prim’s found a boy called Robb-with-two-bees, and then there’s Steve the Goblin, and her dad’s getting together with you’ll-never-guess-who, and as for what’s going on with Ciara and Syzmon … Everything’s a little imperfect.

    ‘Sparkles with authenticity.’ – The Irish Times

    ‘Prim is hilarious, she’s smart, she’s a feminist character – but she’s absolutely imperfect… Sullivan’s novel is a wonderful finale to the trilogy, a series of books any Irish person should read. Even as she’s disappointing everyone around her, Prim will charm the socks off you, again and again and again.’ – The Looking Glass Magazine
