The Lovereading4Kids comment
Life is complicated for Lilah. Her family falls apart when her brother Jay disappears. Managing her anger is only possible because of her great friendship with Bindi. Now Jay suddenly returns. All should be well – but it isn’t. Lilah has to keep her famous anger firmly under control as the family regroups. And she has to re-build her friendship with Bindi. Vanessa Curtis has a sharp ear for teenage dialogue and a warm understanding of the confusions of adolescence.
This funny and moving story is the follow up to The Taming of Lilah May.
Lilah May's Manic Days by Vanessa Curtis
Lilah May used to be angry. VERY angry. But not any more. She's got her temper - and her life - back under control. Or has she? Things with her best friend, Bindi, are going from bad to worse. The whereabouts of her brother Jay is still a mystery. And gorgeous Adam Carter is still out of reach. Groo! Can Lilah sort out her family, her friendship and her love life? Or is her anger about to reach all new levels?
